Science & Transfer

Technology Transfer


In line with the motto “Science creates benefits”, the researchers at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht (HZG) gather scientific expertise in order to find answers and develop solutions for future challenges within the material, climate and coastal research. Transferring these solutions and technologies to both societal and economic sectors is amongst the core aims of the HZG.

The Technology Transfer Support (CT) team thereby assists in all technological transfer activities and contributes in making the innovation process more attractive. From research to application the CT helps by protecting and validating the innovative technologies developed by HZG while also serving as a contact for all commercial inquiries regarding collaborative projects, contract research and use of patented technologies.
