Saxon Transfer Network

Achieve more together!

The Saxon Transfer Network unites about 80 institutions (research institutes, universities, chambers, business development agencies) from all over Saxony and enables the personal exchange of experience between transfer actors on the topic of knowledge and technology transfer. To this end, network meetings on transfer-relevant topics are held every six months at the partners of the Saxon Transfer Network. The external presentation of the transfer community creates transparency for companies, supports the initiation of cooperation and increases the efficiency of knowledge and technology transfer processes.
