Knowledge transfer at all levels

Tutech connects research, business and society

We know what works when it comes to technology and knowledge transfer at the interface between higher education and industry. We’re fluent speakers of the languages of research and business and we’ve been linking up entrepreneurial and research potential successfully for 25 years. Our mission is to create lasting value by putting innovative research results and inventions into practice. We do that by acting as consultants, matchmakers, initiators and coordinators both nationally and internationally.

Tutech is a private-sector subsidiary of Hamburg University of Technology and the City of Hamburg. Together with our sister company, Hamburg Innovation, we connect all the city’s public higher education institutes as well as many research organisations in the Hamburg Metropolitan Region.

Our experienced trainers share basic information as well as expert knowledge as required on topics such as innovation management, international research management, patent management, startup support and technology and knowledge transfer. Working closely with researchers at Hamburg University of Technology, we develop concepts for lifelong learning, especially research-based training for engineers.

The Tutech team

We specialise in exploiting the potential for innovation by bringing in specialists from a wide range of organisations and fields. Our team has a corresponding mix of expertise. We combine the necessary skills with in-depth knowledge of our fields, including project and process management, contract drafting, financing and patent issues.

Harburg upriver port

channel hamburg is an innovation location with outstanding development potential. More than 5 million people live and work in the Hamburg Metropolitan Region, one of the economically strongest areas in Germany and in Europe as a whole. Tutech’s offices are situated between the Harburg Old Town and the southern arm of the River Elbe in the Harburg upriver port, an area threaded with canals and harbour basins.

Changing Harburg

It’s not just bishops and dukes who’ve left traces in Harburg, so has recent history. Today Harburg is an R&I park location with an interesting mix of old and new buildings, business premises, research facilities and residential buildings. This mix is reflected in our working culture, which builds on what is already there to create something new.
