Research is conducted in over 290 third-party funded projects, with national and international partners from science, politics, economics and society. Here you will find a database of our third-party funded projects.Projects A–Z »
Platforms & Observatories
The UFZ technology platforms and high-tech labs offer vital links to science and industry. Experimental platforms and observatories are indispensable in environmental research, if we are to observe the impacts of land-use change and climate change.
Knowledge and Technology Transfer
The UFZ generates sound knowledge, technological solutions and courses of action for decision-makers. An integral part of environmental research is the transfer of knowledge and technologies to society and commerce. Strategic elements of our knowledge transfer activities comprise activities in advisory boards and expert or technical committees, establishment of expert networks as well as the establishment of knowledge platforms and focal points. Strategic elements of our technology transfer are industrial networks, spin-offs, open source solutions or technology offers.Knowledge & Technology Transfer »
