Technology Transfer Research Group at FSU Jena
Head: Jun.-Prof. Dr. Lutz Maicher
The Technology Transfer Research Group is dedicated to the improvement of technology transfer processes. We design and implement innovative, data-driven tools for enhancing knowledge flows between and within organisations.
We understand technology transfer as strategic information management. We collect, analyse and visualize data with the goal of supporting decision making in the technology transfer processes.
Technology transfer is part of one of the biggest transformational processes the global economy is faced with: the metamorphosis into the knowledge economy. The importance of knowledge-based capital is ever increasing. Understanding knowledge-based capital and assessing its impact in concrete situations is crucial for successful technology transfer. We are working on methods and tools for improved mapping and assessment of knowledge-based capital within the organisations and within their competitive environment.
