Research and Commercial Cooperations

Functional Unit 4 – TUM ForTe, the Office for Research and Innovation – is the first point of contact and the central coordinating body for any form of cooperation between the business and research sectors.

Our team provides assistance to scientists and scholars at TUM in gearing their research projects with outside research or business partners toward the university’s strategic development goals. We also act as a point of contact between scientists and scholars at TUM, businesses, universities and non-university research facilities. In addition, we organize sector and topic-specific research workshops for TUM scientists and scholars and external research partners.
