The Centre for Science and Technology Transfer (ZWT) is Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University’s central service and contact point for scientists in the area of applied research.

It helps scientists with project acquisition and project management for public funding. In addition, it promotes cooperation with companies, associations and organisations by establishing contacts and by providing advice on relevant funding programmes as well as legal issues and aspects of commercialisation. It supports scientists and companies with the implementation of joint research and development projects.

The Centre carries out patent reviews and patent commercialisation within the framework of the legal provisions. Please click here for further information on all questions relating to patents. The Centre conducts research marketing on the University’s behalf, maintains the research data base, runs industry-related contact events as well as international trade fairs and organises “Company Day”, the annual recruiting event.

In collaboration with Business Campus Rhein-Sieg GmbH, a joint venture between the University, Kreissparkasse Köln (Cologne savings bank) and the Rhein-Sieg District, the ZWT supports students, graduates and further university members on the road towards setting up their own businesses.
Furthermore, the Centre cooperates with a large number of related associations, federations, chambers and expert networks as well as the NRW Innovation Alliance, i.e. the network of North Rhine-Westphalian universities.
