Hochschulzentrum Donau-Ries, a campus of Augsburg University of Applied Sciences in collaboration with commercialisation firm Technologie Centrum Westbayern, has secured €900,000 (950,000) in funding from the state of Bavaria.

The government will provide the amount in three tranches, split equally over the next three years, to the institution’s tech transfer office Technologietransferzentrum (TTZ). The funding will be used to increase the services offered by TTZ and to drive recruitment.

TTZ, founded in 2012, has as its stated mission to foster knowledge transfer with small and medium-sized enterprises in the region. It is led by Florian Kerber, who has overseen the creation of a large research infrastructure over the past two years and the construction of a test field aimed at applications and manufacturing processes for industry 4.0 projects.

TTZ primarily focuses on technologies such as cybersecurity, manufacturing automation, process development, human-machine collaboration and image-guided robotics.

The centre has previously also received the support of regional businesses and financial services firms as well as higher education institutions Fritz-Hopf-Technikerschule and Swabia’s chamber of commerce.
