Bridge to industry– Translational Research Centre
The transfer from research to practice is of central importance in the Hearing4all cluster, because only in this way can the vision “Hearing for all” become reality.
This important task is coordinated by the Translational Research Centre (TRC) based at HörTech gGmbH. It supports the scientists in identifying results worthy of protection, mediates between the various stakeholders (scientists, committees and transfer points of the universities) and assists them in drafting contracts with industry. The TRC develops structures that regulate the handling of IP and patents within the Cluster of Excellence. In addition, the TRC initiates industry-funded contract research projects that build on the results obtained in the Cluster of Excellence in order to further develop them in a product-specific manner.
