Knowledge and Technology Transfer Office

Gain fast access to the competence of the universities.

The knowledge and technology transfer office provides companies with uncomplicated and rapid access to the know-how and resources of the FHNW.

Thanks to the expertise and laboratory facilities of the UASNW, technological and business management issues can be addressed, as can challenges related to digital transformation, globalisation or sustainability. Depending on the task, this takes place within the framework of publicly funded research projects, specific consulting mandates or in the form of projects with students. Regardless of this, the solutions are developed in close exchange with the client and the results are treated confidentially.
