Transfer at RUB

In addition to research and education, the transfer of research knowledge and findings is the RUB’s third core competence. By providing a number of programmes, the university paves the way for ongoing exchange between science and industry. This includes traditional instruments such as assisting patent applications and consultancy for start-up entrepreneurs, as well as a comprehensive further education programme at Akademie der RUB. Moreover, we nurture entrepreneurship at an early stage and provide many opportunities for students to put their entrepreneurial abilities to the test and to hone them.
