Technology transfer is the third core task of universities, in addition to education and research. The transfer and application of knowledge for the benefit of the economy and society is becoming increasingly important in national and international innovation policy, in which technical universities play a leading role. TU Delft sees it as its social task to propose groundbreaking technical-scientific solutions that contribute to impact for a better society.
