Research & Technology Transfer

Based on the research group “HighTech Startbahn” who was founded in 2010 at the TU Dresden we are now your contact partner to successfully shape the transfer of knowledge and technology. We have the know-how and the right experts to initiate projects (partner search, application), do the project management and successfully transfer the results in the end.

The research cluster addresses the technological breakthrough through real-time capability. 

For us, real-time capability means that technology will function without noticeable delay in the future. 

More than 90 partner organizations are researching on the latency minimization in sensor and actuator systems in about 30 individual projects in order to improve people’s quality of life through real-time capability. 

The HighTech Startbahn Netzwerk e.V. acts as the sponsor and first point of contact for the consortium.

transfer ecosystem & instruments

Due to the need for structured support for the spin-off activities of the TU Dresden, the project “HighTech Startbahn Inkubator mit angeschlossenem Frühphasenfonds” was founded at the  Chair for Mobile Communication Systems. In this project, the necessary and sufficient conditions for incubation tasks were determined by means of literature and best practice analysis and were subsequently prototypically implemented. Out of these activities the term “HighTech Startbahn” was born which represents the legal entities as well as the research group.

The research project investigated the effective approach for the development of a technology transfer ecosystem involving public and private actors in the example region Saxony. Best practice analyses of comparable regions with a comparable focus on micro- and nanotechnology were carried out, e.g. Grenoble, Trention, Eindhoven and Helsinki. In a second step the results were transferred to the region and individual transfer instruments were prototypically implemented.

The ECOII transfer project addresses two subject areas:

  •  The validation financing of cross-institute, transfer-related projects
    The focus here is on the transfer of a best practice validation tool to other scientific institutions and the systematization of the integration of external expertise in the validation process.

 

  • The initiation of R&D cooperation
    Here, instruments are to be (further) developed and tested in prototypes, which increase the level of knowledge of non-university research institutions and industries through common, current research priorities and thereby particularly support the initiation of R&D cooperation and the development of joint research roadmaps.
    The main focus of the HighTech Startbahn research group at TU Dresden is on integrating greening expertise and know-how from the market environment into the validation process of cross-innovation projects. In addition, it supports the conception and implementation of prototypical formats that address the visibility of research activities and the initiation of new R&D collaborations between scientific institutions and industrial companies.
    We have been researching transfer instruments and best practice concepts to support technology transfer in cooperation with renowned transfer organizations for over 10 years. The focus is particularly on transfer through spin-offs (link to old incubator and ECOI projects).

The validation of scientific results is indispensable for their transfer to industry. On behalf of the state of Saxony, an expertise  should be carried out that includes the following questions: Enhancing the transfer from science to industry 

  • Analysis of the Saxon funding landscape with regard to validation funding 
  • Identification of funding gaps 
  • Developing a concept for a funding instrument 
  • Stärkung des Transfers von der Wissenschaft zur Wirtschaft
  • Analyse der sächsischen Förderlandschaft hinsichtlich Validierungsförderung
  • Identifikation von Förderlücken
  • Entwicklung eines Konzeptes für ein Förderinstrumentes

Execution: HighTech Startbahn GmbH

Project content
The aim of the project was to develop a prototype transfer ecosystem for the almost cluster. For this purpose, a project-related and accompanying program was developed that prepares the results-oriented utilization and accompanies the projects over their duration. Using various methods, obstacles to utilization could be identified and overcome and a simultaneous development of competence on the part of the researchers was achieved.

Development of transfer programs for cluster organizations

We offer programs with a duration of between 1.5 and 5 years that support national cluster organizations in their knowledge and technology transfer (WTT).

In their function as sustainable, structure-creating institutions, cluster organizations are often tasked with establishing an institutionalized, systematic WTT. The aim is to promote awareness and affinity for the transfer across all members of the cluster and, of course, ultimately to carry out and “live” the transfer.

The HighTech Startbahn offers:

As an experienced, long-standing supporter of technological spin-offs from R&D and established companies, HTSB has a wide range of formats and instruments to support technology transfer. Central, established building blocks combined according to individual needs form the key to a successful, institutionalized transfer.

HiGesammt offers this together with you we establish the WTT as a fixed element of the cluster organization. By combining best practice showcases and stimulating lectures with hands-on workshops and joint events, the cluster members are made aware of the topic, i.e. especially the scientists and researchers, also the active technology transfer addressed by spin-offs. The program covers the support and support of (potential) spin-off projects with individual incubation measures as well as the integration of internal and external expertise.
