The Centre for Science and Technology Transfer (ZWT) is Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University’s central service and contact point for scientists in the area of applied research.

It helps scientists with project acquisition and project management for public funding. In addition, it promotes cooperation with companies, associations and organisations by establishing contacts and by providing advice on relevant funding programmes as well as legal issues and aspects of commercialisation. It supports scientists and companies with the implementation of joint research and development projects.

The Centre carries out patent reviews and patent commercialisation within the framework of the legal provisions.
