Knowledge & Technology Transfer

PIK's contribution to innovation and sustainable development

Since its foundation, scientific policy advice and communicating scientific insights to society have been a central task and at the same time an important goal of PIK. For a number of years now, various transfer activities have contributed to increasingly making research results available to the business sector. As a result, PIK makes an important contribution to innovation and sustainable development.

The knowledge and technology transfer unit sees itself as a link between PIK scientists and the economy. On the one hand, it supports employees in the application for and implementation of transfer projects or the realization of a spin-off project. On the other hand, it is the central point of contact for requests from business and industry. It helps to find the right partner at PIK and coordinates further steps.
