Transfer at HHU

The objective of knowledge transfer is to use research results in as many different ways possible and integrate them in everyday societal and entrepreneurial practice.

Claiming inventions generated by its researchers gives HHU the opportunity to safeguard results from research and development at both national and international level, to use them for partnerships with business and industry and commercialize them in cooperation with PROvendis GmbH, NRW’s patent marketing agency.


As an entrepreneurs’ university, HHU pays special attention to business start-ups when commercializing research results. All HHU’s activities related to start-ups are bundled under the umbrella of the Center for Entrepreneurship Düsseldorf (CEDUS).

Research partnerships between science and business are often based on existing personal contacts between the respective partners and researchers at the University. There are also other networks which support and encourage transfer, e.g.
- Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK)
- Rhineland Research Dialogue
- CLIB 2021
