IMLead® Technology Transfer
Technology transfer is our DNA. In the 18th century, when the regions of Europe with raw material deposits and infrastructure became leading economic centres, the tinkerers in poor Swabia/Baden-Württemberg were successful. A Swabian tinkerer is someone who likes to try to figure out difficult things by tinkering, trying things out and thinking. Today, one no longer speaks of tinkering, but of innovation. They were supported in this by Ferdinand von Steinbeis (1807-1893). He was a pioneer for practice-oriented education and technology transfer and still stands for our philosophy today.
With our IMLead® concept, we accelerate the leapfrogging of outdated stages of technological development, and make the latest green technologies available worldwide. In our experience, this is only possible with an integrated approach that adapts existing technological knowledge to the new socio-economic conditions. In doing so, it is necessary to take into account intercultural specificities and to ensure a sustainable transfer of know-how. Cooperation with regional partners, working in innovation clusters and local research and development activities guarantee an efficient and sustainable technology transfer process.
