Transfer at the BTU We link science and society

Knowledge and technology transfer is the exchange of scientific knowledge, innovations and solutions between all scientific areas of the university and society, business, politics and culture. At BTU, we see it as the third pillar alongside studies and research, and we are aware of our regional responsibility for Lusatia.
