The aim of the “Transfer of Transfer” project is the successful implementation of a technology transfer model to be developed for the host country / region by applying the basic principles of Steinbeis.This means not just copying the Steinbeis-model, but a specified transfer, which is orientated towards the local economic, scientific and technological infrastructure.
