Acting as contact partners for innovative entrepreneurs, we form the interface between research and industry, between product ideas, innovations, and markets. Teams composed of scientists, mathematicians, engineers, economists, and lawyers advise customers on DLR’s technological expertise and on all relevant questions relating to potential technology transfers. We back up the entire process from the concept stage to the successful market launch, and offer specific support in the further improvement of product-related technologies.
In all this, we believe in creating a mutual benefit. By co-operating with DLR, you will find answers to your questions about future products and market opportunities. As our partner, you will have access to our competence and technologies which, in turn, will help you secure competitive advantages by reducing time to market and by taking out licenses on property rights. For its part, DLR, by co-operating with its partners, will benefit from the market success of its technologies, and can draw on any feedback it receives for its future development activities.
In a successful technology transfer, research produces a visible benefit for industry and the community, thus contributing towards sustainable growth and prosperity.
