In JARA, Forschungszentrum Jülich and RWTH Aachen University pursue excellent basic research combined with application-oriented research.
An important task for JARA is therefore to ensure that the findings of scientific research are applied wherever this makes sense and to facilitate the transfer of know-how and technology to industry and society.

An important task for JARA is therefore to ensure that scientific research results are applied wherever it makes the most sense and to ensure a knowledge and technology transfer in industry and society.
The technology transfer departments in Jülich and Aachen support the researchers in this respect as central service providers. For example, they contact industry directly and offer advice on all legal and business-related issues. Patent scouts keep their eyes open on site in the institutes for marketable research findings.
Another important task for which the technology transfer departments are responsible is supporting scientists in making applications for third-party funding on a national and international level.
Transfer of knowledge is a important task for research and scientists. The purpose of knowledge transfer is to impart know-how. It adresses society as well as decision-makers of industry, politics and the scientific community. Several tools are povided in the Jülich Aachen Research Alliance to transfer knowledge to the different target groups.
