Research and Transfer Support
The Research and Transfer Support department supports researchers and research groups at TU Wien in various research and utilisation activities.
One of the major contributions that TU Wien makes to society is in passing on the knowledge gained from its research activities so that society can benefit from them. Leading on from this, the core activities of Research and Transfer Support are focused on providing a service to researchers in collaborative projects, rather than maximising the financial return from them. This ensures that the benefit to society of research projects is the focus of interest. The university’s own system for utilising the expertise at TU Wien, which this department helped to create, is required to bring benefits for individual researchers, research groups and institutes, and for the whole university.
An important goal of the activities of the university’s Research and Transfer Support department is to position TU Wien as a first class research institution, nationally and internationally.
