TBH - Transfer Agencies of Bavarian Universities

The Centre for Research and Knowledge Transfer at HSWT is one of the 28 transfer agencies of Bavarian universities and contributes to the BayDat-Online transfer portal.

The transfer agencies of Bavarian universities (TBH) use their joint website to provide concise, standardised information about the services provided by and the contact details of the 11 transfer agencies of Bavarian universities (TBU) and the 17 transfer agencies of Bavarian universities of applied sciences (TBHAW).

This is a platform both for potential partners from business and society seeking support with specific tasks and for researchers who would like to collaborate with external partners. BayDat-Online, the transfer portal of Bavarian universities, is a project launched by the working group of the transfer agencies of Bavarian universities (TBU) and the Bavarian State Ministry of Education, Science and the Arts in cooperation with the Bavarian universities of applied sciences. The transfer portal enables users to search for information and points of contact from across Bavaria’s universities and universities of applied sciences. Research areas, lab facilities and opportunities for collaboration with university researchers are listed in a clearly arranged, standardised way.
