BIH Lecture

Society's expectations of universities and research institutions regarding their contribution to solving major challenges are growing. Driven by performance comparisons and profile debates, universities and research institutions are repeatedly asked  to systematically assess and present their knowledge exchange achievements and cooperative relationships. This requires suitable quantitative and qualitative indicators for different transfer profiles. In the project Transferbarometer, a group of five universities and six Helmholtz-Centers have developed a transfer concept to clarify the range of possible transfer and cooperation activities as well as institutional preconditions. They have also identified and tested possible indicators to assess, present and communicate their knowledge exchange achievements. The Transferbarometer can help institutions to develop a knowledge exchange profile along their institutional strengths and further develop a knowledge exchange and cooperation culture. The lecture will present the key results of the project and discuss its possible use for institutional leadership, transfer professionals and researchers.
