FUTUR (Forschungs- Und Technologietransfer Universität Regensburg) is Regensburg University?s multidisciplinary service facility for knowledge and technology transfer. It is a link between private business and university research.
FUTUR acts as intermediary, interpreter and promoter between the university and industry in the field of knowledge and technology transfer - for the benefit of both partners. The primary objectives of knowledge and technology transfer are, on the one hand, to disseminate the potentials of knowledge and innovation to companies and, on the other hand, to acquire practical experience and obtain external funding for the university.
FUTUR began its work in promoting regional economic development in February 1989. Over 820 contacts, consultations and co-operations have been established over the past 14 years. About 1300 consultations with representatives of private enterprises, 1266 consultations with members of the University of Regensburg and 756 consultations with members of other universities have since taken place
