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.

In this strategy project an initial cluster (technical perspective) and cluster strategy (in particular market perspective) was developed. For this purpose, technology scouting and innovation management methods were used as well as fundamental analyzes regarding feasibility, acceptance and market. In addition, organizational, management and communication concepts had to be designed.
07/2015 - 12/2019
The strategy project takes care of the implementation of the management, organization and communication concepts developed by infast strategy. These concepts as well as the cluster strategy and roadmap are continuously being developed. For example, the almost complete span> coordinated second project call.
07/2015 - 12/2017 (extended til 03/2018)
The aim of the project was to prototype a transfer ecosystem for the cluster. For this purpose, a project-related and accompanying program was developed, which prepared the results-oriented utilization and accompanied the projects over their term. Various methods were used to identify and overcome barriers to exploitation, while at the same time achieving a level of competence on the part of the researchers.

The project is a so-called "innovation project" that supports the implementation of concepts developed in fast strategy II span> (eg by organizing cluster meetings) and in particular PR and marketing Take action on the fast span> cluster.

The accompanying research project examines the impact of the fast cluster on the regional innovation ecosystem, the impact of almost technologies on the human-technical arrangements (MTA) and the significance of almost for the topic of "Industry 4.0".
Institut für Arbeit und Technik (Projektkoordinator)
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.
- Development of a communication infrastructure for tactile networked driving
- Improving autonomous driving (local sensors) by linking vehicles with each other and with the infrastructure
- New driving strategies, reduced fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, less congestion, significantly better road utilization
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 aim of the project was to develop a transfer ecosystem for the fast cluster and to implement it prototypically. A project-related and project-accompanying program which prepares the result-oriented exploitation and accompanies the projects over their duration was developed for this purpose. Using various methods it was possible to identify and overcome obstacles of exploitation and researchers gained competences at the same time.
The project aims to develop further transfer instruments for individual problems identified in ECO or to further develop prototypically implemented ones. The focus is on the following topics: First, the strengthening of validation activities and financing in cross-innovation projects. The validation process will be extended to include further elements such as market experts and spin-off specialists. In addition, a push-pull steering instrument is to be developed and prototypically implemented, which will help (non-university) research institutions to further develop their research roadmaps.
- Encouraging the cooperation of SMEs with universities, higher education institutions and research institutes
- Increasing the transparency and availability of current research activities and the development of new technologies
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
The accompanying research project analyses the effects of the fast cluster on the regional innovation ecosystem, the effects of the fast technologies on the Human-Technology Arrangements (MTA) as well as the importance of fast for the topic “Industry 4.0”.
