TranSOLV from Basic Research to Application

The transfer center TranSOLV ensures that results from fundamental research done in RESOLV find their way quickly and efficiently into 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.
