In high-performance laboratories, scientists of the Cluster of Excellence ct.qmat are intensively engaged into research to reveal the mysterious quantum world, to discover previously unknown materials, and to make them usable for everyday life. But what works in the lab is still a long way from being mass-produced. A new event series aims at increasing awareness of the topic "Knowledge and technology transfer" among the cluster's early career researchers and providing them with concrete tools for a career in industry or as a start-up. Experienced researchers will have the opportunity to brush up on knowledge in order to be able to provide advisory support to their employees.


On 16 July 2021, within the kick-off session, we are happy to welcome Sebastian Wündisch who will provide an overview on intellectual property rights and legal areas which are relevant for technology transfer as well as on forms of transfer, such as licensing or spin-offs.

According to the needs of the participants, topics will be identified (e.g., patent law, start-ups, etc.) that will be covered in greater breadth in subsequent event series (probably starting in September 2021).
