Transfer at THI

The transfer of ideas, knowledge and technology is firmly anchored at  THI. Shaping the transfer to the economy and society is one of the three central tasks of the university (Bavarian Higher Education Act). THI is particularly committed to its regional environment. It creates networks and shapes social dialogue. The university supports the competitiveness of its cooperation partners through innovation and successfully promotes spin-offs. It generates added value for society through civic engagement. Through a variety of event formats, it creates an intensive exchange of knowledge and ideas and enables academic qualification for broad sections of the population through extensive further education programmes.
