GFZ Technology transfer - innovation, business collaboration, and transfer activities

We organize and support the commercial application and marketing of research results from the sections and centres of the GFZ and support scientists and academics throughout the entire process, from initial consultation to the active marketing of services and products.

We are a point of contact for innovative topics and coordinate networks with partners from the economy. We support the transfer of innovative geotechnologies to utilization and application. In doing so, we provide consultation for inquirers from the economy at every step, from first contact to a customized industry workshop at the GFZ, to the presentation of a working prototype at trade fairs and congresses.

Come to use with your questions and ideas, we are happy to help!

Strategic alignment

The transfer of knowledge, results and technologies in society, politics and economy is an integral part of the GFZ strategy, through which the centre plays an important role in social and political information and consultation, as well as in the innovation process.

Against the background of its proven research strength, the GFZ pursues the following objectives in the context of the transfer of knowledge and technologies in economically relevant areas:

  • Generation of economic benefits by working closely with industry partners and associations
  • Expansion of new and support for existing relationships with economic partners here and abroad, with the aim of the development and introduction of market innovations
  • Enhance the attractiveness of the GFZ for scientists and scholars through participation in current and market-relevant fields, as well as through incentives in the context of the application of results
