enaCom - enabling people to create opportunities

Communion

enaCom is committed to promoting transfer of knowledge and technology. We combine different transfer activities from all research areas of the University. We document successful transfer formats and give them visibility. We present best practice from within the University so that all those interested in transfer may benefit all together. To the outside world, we act as a showcase for the most exciting transfer projects.

Communication

enaCom informs about innovative research results close to application. We talk about science offering meet-ups for different stakeholders in business and society. As a central point of contact and gateway for co-operation, we connect all stakeholders inside and outside the University.

Commitment

enaCom is committed to all stakeholders interested in knowledge exchange; researchers and students, as well as practitioners and citizens outside the academic community. Dialogue promotes a broad, research-based transfer of knowledge. We therefore speak both languages, the language of academics and the language of professionals.

Companion

enaCom provides individual consulting and assistance to support the multidimensional transfer activities of the University. We always help existing and future partners inside and outside the University and provide unbureaucratic, efficient service.

Commercialisation

enaCom handles all matters concerning utilization of the excellent research results achieved by the University. We provide information on the options available for protecting intellectual property rights and how to bring inventions to start-up.
