Technologies for the industry

Browse our technology platform and take advantage of the uncomplicated access to new knowledge, innovative processes and technologies as well as research and development results close to the market from the following subject areas:

Creating progress together

We are looking for partners from economy and industry – from large companies to medium-sized enterprises – who will create innovative products from technical solutions together with us. The support of development projects and transfer expertise from a single source are an essential success factor for commercialization. For this purpose, Innovation and Relations Management at KIT covers all areas of modern technology transfer: Innovation management, patenting and licensing, as well as technology marketing and project support of development cooperation. The IRM team actively markets KIT research results and is responsible for negotiating contracts on behalf of KIT.


RESEARCH TO BUSINESS gives you access to know-how, inventions, and patents of KIT. Our marketplace of innovations offers technical solutions for different disciplines and sectors. We regularly present KIT technology offers that are on the threshold of commercialization and for which KIT is looking for cooperation partners for further development, use, or acquisition. Subscribe to our newsletter or the customizable technology alert to be updated regularly on the latest offers. Or follow our activities and successful development projects in the transfer blog!



Generally, research results are still a big step away from a concrete product. For market relevance, further development of the technology, the process, or the software has to be invested. In order to close the resulting financing gap, there are technology transfer projects at KIT. KIT and an industrial partner further develop products, processes, or services until they are ready for the market. In this case, KIT invests half of its own central funds from the NEULAND Innovation Fund. Become a partner and pave the way for new technologies!
