From Idea to Product - With Our InnovationScouts
Our InnovationScouts head individual advising conversations and coachings with individual researchers. They also put on information events for entire chairs within RWTH Aachen. We support researchers at the universities in their questions on intellectual property, and the development and implementation of technology oriented establishments. We do this together with the Aachen Entrepreneurship Gründerzentrum of RWTH Aachen.
Establishing and Mediating Contacts
We also support in providing contact to collaborative partners in the economy and industry. Contact mediation also occurs in the other direction of course. We gladly help companies locate the thematically necessary institutes and research groups within RWTH Aachen and to establish contact with them. Upon need, we are active in the organization and execution of collaborative events, such as informational interviews, workshops, whole day events on the initiation of new collaborations or the expansion of already existing research and development collaborations.
