Affiliated Institutes

Affiliated Institutes are legally independent institutions which perform together with TU Dresden tasks which cannot be adequately perceived by the TU Dresden alone (s. § 95 SächsHSFG). The intensive cooperation with the TU Dresden is regulated by contractual arrangements with which even the status of an “Affiliated Institutes” of the TU Dresden is awarded.

The duties of the affiliated institutes besides basic and applied subject-related research and development, also includes in-service training, the training of young scientists and knowledge transfer. Objectives of the joint work are the establishment and strengthening of fruitful interactions between the partners, the creation of synergies and the accelerated transfer of research results. The training institutes provide young graduates additional skills and special abilities (adapted to all disciplines) and thus make a significant contribution to increasing the employability of the graduates of the TU Dresden.
