Scientific research and development, the gain of knowledge and the newly generated knowledge are not an end in themselves, but serve the further development of our society. The transfer of the results to the public, economy, politics and social institutions is of central importance. With the "Bergische Transfergeschichten" (Bergisch Transfer Stories), the Bergische Universität shows in an exemplary way how researchers contribute to the region with their work, network with other partners and thus actively shape society.
