The TRA Present Pasts works closely together with the Transfer Center enaCom to promote the transfer of research results. Innovation Scouts identify transfer potential within the TRAs, specifically inform scientists in regard to technology transfer, and support them from the start-up project to the transfer project.

The other TRAs of the University of Bonn

The continuous exchange with the other Transdisciplinary Research Areas of the University of Bonn is an important pillar in the communication and further development of the TRA Present Pasts. The TRA management is happy to support you in establishing contact with the scholars of the five other TRAs and in developing innovative collaborations.
