The TU Ilmenau Transfer GmbH sees itself both as a service provider and partner of mainly regional but also Germany-wide operating companies in terms of the range of scientific and technical services offered and as a promoter and support in the development, administration and marketing of future-oriented projects of the Technical University of Ilmenau.

This duality of the Transfer GmbH's field of activity thus enables it to take on a mediating position between industry and the university. We support the cooperation between departments of the TU Ilmenau and companies from all over Germany and enable the joint use of laboratories, hardware and licenses as well as the placement of experts with the subject-related know-how for the successful achievement of the project goals. The well-organized spatial and personnel planning does not disturb the teaching activities of the university, but rather expands and specifies the application and research spectrum of different areas.
