Research & Knowledge Transfer Successes

Scientific research and development, gaining new insights and the generation of new knowledge are not an end in themselves, but rather serve to advance the society in which we live. The transfer of research findings to the public, industry, politics and social institutions is of central importance in this context. The University of Wuppertal’s “Bergisch Research & Knowledge Transfer Successes” exemplify some of the ways in which researchers have managed to introduce themselves and their work within the region and to network with other partners thereby actively shaping society.
