Forms of Cooperation



The close proximity of the RPTU Kaiserslautern-Landau to major commercial vehicle manufacturers offer these companies the opportunity to work closely with the organizations within ZNT working groups of the RPTU Kaiserslautern-Landau and its associated technology transfer centers and institutes. The cooperation may take the following forms:

  • Integrated Projects
    This type of collaboration provides a group of industrial companies the opportunity to acquire targeted and long-term research positions with the RPTU Kaiserslautern-Landau to cooperate and make use of their skills, resources and funding opportunities by working in jointly defined research projects.

  • Contract research
    Companies requiring support for their research and development projects can acquire services of research groups at RPTU Kaiserslautern-Landau for not only to work on parts of the project but also on the entire research project. In this way, the company ensures that the research is specifically for its own interests and the rights are also protected.

  • Cooperation projects
    If a question of applying the previously developed work with a short to medium time horizon arises, the company itself provides the cooperation project as a form of cooperation. This existing technical and methodological knowledge of the partners of ZNT is used for fast processing of the question.

  • Technology transfer
    In the context of events and projects, the company offers the opportunity to discover the latest research findings for their own industrial practices. The partners of the ZNT also offer various innovative new ideas and results to transfer into industrial practice.

  • Training
    Companies have the opportunity to attend training courses and workshops on current trends and issues in research and practice. In this context, well developed and continuing trainings are conducted on specific topics or implemented directly as a training in business practice.
