Leading position among the top 7 in knowledge transfer for Hamburg University of Technology
Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) gets best marks in six of seven categories, for example in the indicators “income from private sources”, “patents” and “spin-offs”.
Hamburg University of Technology’s good performance is based on its research achievements: in particular external research income, interdisciplinary publications and the total number of research publications were responsible for the top placings.
A focus of the evaluation is the knowledge transfer generated by university research in cooperation with industry. Several U-Multirank indicators are available here. They include the percentage of industry co-patents, the number of spin-offs in relation to academic staff, the number of companies newly founded by graduates, and the percentage of the university’s research publications cited in patents. In terms of spin-offs and start-ups, TUHH is in the top group for spin-offs and start-ups and also gets top marks for industry co-patents.
