Welcome to ScienceWorks

ScienceWorks supports the process of value creation out of scientific research for society. Our approach is to draw on the expertise of sector experts and to apply good practices from around the world. Value creation out of scientific research contributes to our economy and society. We help to optimize this process through the correct use of instruments and to support new connections.
The fields we are active in:
  • Transferring scientific knowledge to society
  • Improving processes of value creation out of scientific research
  • Optimizing the regional innovation system
  • Internationalization of high tech clusters
  • Ranking and measuring the impact of university knowledge transfer
  • Analyzing and supporting science based incubators & science parks
