Networking & Partnerships

We are closely involved in numerous regional and national networks and initiatives in the field of knowledge transfer and work together with industry partners in order to promote the exchange with different external stakeholders. When you are interested in collaborating with third parties or get a Mentor outside the university to develop your research into a practical application, get in touch with us


Transfer network of Cologne Universities

 Collaboration and multidisciplinary teams are needed to drive innovation. The transfer- and start-up offices of the University of Cologne, Technische Hochschule Köln, Deutsche Sporthochschule Köln, and the Rheinische Fachhochschule therefore bundled their transfer- and start-up support under the joint brand "Gateway". With the joint brand, the scientific institutions are further expanding their cooperation. Those interested in transfer will thus benefit from a broader range of services that are coordinated with one another. In addition to advice on funding opportunities, these include incubator and accelerator programs for startup teams or access to the open innovation platform
