To stay connected with companies in the region and help them fully exploit their innovative potential, we work together with the regional Chamber of Commerce and Industry and Chamber of Skilled Crafts. In addition to providing direct contact with companies in the region and throughout Germany, this helps us to keep abreast of current responsibilities, demands, and objectives in the business world.
The University of Bayreuth considers strengthening innovation in the region to be one of its responsibilities. For this reason, we work together closely with policy-makers in Bayreuth and the surrounding region, driving not only research, but also knowledge transfer to industry. Important partners include the IHK's Innovation Committee, Bayreuth's Business Development Office, and Greater Bayreuth. The list of members of the University of Bayreuth's Board of Trustees also illustrates our close cooperation with the private sector and our support for collaboration between research and industry.
