We are innovations partner.
Our pioneering spirit drives us forward
The RPTU is the technical university in Rhineland-Palatinate. We find answers to urgent questions about the future. It is a transfer and innovation partner for business, society and politics. In this way, we make our contribution and at the same time help to further develop the regional economy and society. We are not only concerned with putting research ideas into practice, but also with entering into discourse with society on current topics and communicating our research findings in a comprehensible way.

Help for companies, researchers and people interested in founding
The Transfer, Innovation and Sustainability Unit (RTIN) is the first point of contact for transfer at the RPTU. It supports chairs in bringing research results into application, is the contact for companies and organises trade fair appearances, among other things. Anyone with questions about patents, trademarks and design should contact the Patent and Information Centre on the Kaiserslautern campus. The RTIN is also home to the start-up office, which advises students and researchers interested in starting a business and supports them in their steps towards self-employment.
Networks & partnerships: Only together we are strong
The RPTU is active in many networks. Together with our partners, we develop strategies to strengthen the science locations of Kaiserlautern and Landau as well as the regional innovation system. In addition, we maintain partnerships with educational and cultural institutions as well as political education organisations and initiatives. We are also active across borders, for example, to expand cooperation in the areas of sustainability and interculturality and to make it possible to study across national borders within the framework of the University of the Greater Region.
