TranSOLV: from Basic Research to Application

Together with the two transfer centres ACC THz and CES located at the Ruhr-Universit├Ąt Bochum, Fraunhofer UMSICHT realizes the direct and rapid transfer of knowledge obtained by the fundamental research done in RESOLV into technologically relevant processes and products via projects with industrial partners.

UMSICHT possesses extensive expertise in the fields of cutting-edge applied and industry-oriented processes with respect to the development of energy-efficient, environment-friendly, and sustainable processes or products. Additionally, the Competence Cluster for Electrochemistry (CES) offers fundamental knowledge for future-technologies in energy-efficiency, synthesis of primary products and polymers, and surface finishing/treatment. This is complemented by the excellent THz-research (spectroscopic studies on solvation) and efficient technology transfer which the Applied Competence Cluster Terahertz (ACC-THz) has to offer.

Transfer Concept

Direct Communication with Industrial Partners
The scientists in TranSOLV form the link between RESOLV's fundamental research and industry as they are constantly in touch with potential industrial contacts and existing cooperation partners, including ACC THz, CES, and UMSICHT.

Regular Transfer Workshops
Workshops focussing on the scientific exchange within RESOLV and with partners from industry take place on a regular basis.

Shared Labs
The joint usage of the research infrastructure of RESOLV and UMSICHT plus our industrial partners' research facilities promotes the transfer of fundamental knowledge up to marketable products.

The long-term aim of the transfer project is the design and application of new research projects initiated by TranSOLV and including cooperations between RESOLV, UMSICHT, Fraunhofer, and other industrial partners.
