Knowledge Transfer Centres

Knowledge Transfer Centre West


The Knowledge Transfer Centre West was set up as a regional Knowledge Transfer Centre as part of the Impulsprogramms für den österreichischen Wissens- und Technologietransfer . The Knowledge Transfer Centre West is funded by the aws, with funds from the Nationalstiftung für Forschung, Technologie und Entwicklung (Österreich-Fonds). The second funding period (phase 2) runs from July 1, 2019 to December 31, 2021.

The goal is to intensify and professionalise the transfer of knowledge and technology through joint actions and measures by the partners. In doing so, commercialisation potentials are to be opened uo and the cooperation with industry but also with society as a whole is deepened and expanded.

The program includes the following cooperation projects:

  • KV 1: Kommunikations.HUB.West
  • KV 2: Kooperationen mit Wirtschaft und Industrie
  • KV 3: Neue Wege im Wissens‐ und Technologietransfer
  • KV 4: Kraftwerk | Generator
  • KV 5: MINT‐Region West

Details about the projects can be found here.

The MUI is part of four cooperation projects and has the lead of the cooperation project 2 Kooperationen mit Wirtschaft und Industrie.
