Research co-operations

Technische Universität Ilmenau makes great efforts in order to be a driving force for innovation in the economy through the targeted transfer of knowledge and technology. Measures such as the establishment of a central contact point for the economy, the determination of current research needs and the targeted setup and support of R&D projects together with regional enterprises serve to raise the level of innovation and thus competitiveness of the industry. Furthermore, Technische Universität Ilmenau makes the existing infrastructure as well as the academic competencies transparent by offering multiple events that aim at the presentation of the main fields of research and the range of services provided.

There are currently more than 300 co-operations with the industry. Academic co-operations range from services and sponsored industrial research to basic or application-specific collaborative projects together with enterprises.

Several German enterprises are currently involved in 12 cross-university projects sponsored by the EU, in which the university creates a basis for these enterprises in order to participate in research competencies and find new business contacts on a European as well as an international scale.

Technische Universität Ilmenau also collaborates and cooperates closely with research and transfer institutions around the university in the context of externally funded research as well as technology transfer:
