As the largest and third most funded university for applied sciences in Thuringia we play a central role as a driver of technological, social and economic innovation in the region.  Therefore, we see knowledge and technology transfer as one of our core tasks.
The University of Applied Sciences Jena fundamentally understands cooperation with business and society as a multidirectional interaction. Therefore, we support researchers and lecturers as well as external partners in transfer activities.

Cooperation with economy

Our modern research infrastructure and the professional know-how of our scientists make us a strong partner for practice-oriented research. The foundation for research at the University of Applied Sciences Jena is the close connection with companies - regionally and nationwide.
A large part of our research projects are collaborative projects with the industry. In particular, we would like to support small and medium-sized companies in research and development, be it with process or equipment developments.

Open Science

As part of transfer into society and, of course, the research community the University of Applied Sciences Jena supports the Open Science idea. We are convinced that Open Science not only advances research, but also creates and adds value for society as a whole. We are following the Thuringian strategy for a digital society.
