Service for Research and Transfer

TU Dresden offers its scientists and researchers a comprehensive research support structure.

The team of the research support office (Unit 5.1) provides support for fundamental and/or applied research at national third-party funding institutions, such as the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG) or the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung, BMBF. Our team offers assistance during the complete life cycle of a funding application – from  project scouting to the actual submission of a project and supports scientists in enlarging their network of cooperation partners from science, industry and culture, e.g. in the framework of the event format IDEENSTUDIO. Furthermore, our TUD research pool provides researchers with the possibility for short-term financial support while preparing a research proposal for publicly funded joint projects.

The European Project Center (Unit 5.2) is specialised in providing comprehensive support to scientists concerning the application for and management of EU-funded projects. TU Dresden's incetive system promotes the initiation of joint projects as well as the targeted lobbying in science policy associations at European level.

The Transfer Office (Unit 5.3) is the focal point for all questions related to know-how and technology transfer. The Office supports TU Dresden’s scientists in the patenting and licensing of research results, industry co-operations and the creation of spin-offs. Important partners are TU Dresden’s Patent Information Centre and the start-up initiative dresden | exists.

The Graduate Academy (Unit 5.4) supports doctoral candidates and postdocs at all stages of their academic career. It offers a qualification program for young researchers, short-term financial support as well as a counselling and advisory service.

The Team of Administration of External Funding (Unit 1.3) in Directorate 1 supports in cases of economic relevant cooperations with industry partners or public institutions (Contract Research). In addition, you receive a competent service in the execution of your projects, no matter which financier.

The DRESDEN-concept Welcome Center staff will be glad to assist all international visiting researchers and PhD students staying for more than three months before and after your arrival to Dresden to facilitate your acclimatisation.
