Technology transfer

RESOLV has its own transfer center: TranSOLV

TranSOLV supports the rapid transfer of basic research done in RESOLV to application. 

TranSOLV started in 2013 in cooperation with the Fraunhofer Institute UMSICHT, which possesses extensive expertise in the fields of cutting-edge applied and industry-oriented processes as well as the exploitation of Intellectual Property (IP). Since 2015, TranSOLV's office is located in the research building ZEMOS, the Home of Solvation Science on the RUB-campus. TranSOLV works closely with Start4Chem, a dedicated incubator for Chemistry, that was founded 2019 as part of the Exzellenz Start-Up Center.NRW Worldfactory at RUB. 


TranSOLV is happy to support the RESOLV researchers and to establish contact to the institutional transfer centers, if they

  • request advice with regard to IP- or contractual issues.
  • want to enter a joint-venture with an industrial partner.
  • desire to set up their own business

TranSOLV is also a reliable partner, if a contact from the outside wishes to get in touch with our researchers.

TranSOLV organizes and supports regular transfer events in several formats:


Colloquia, Workshops, Events and Excursions
