Research and commercial cooperations
TUM promotes both basic research, aimed at furthering scientific knowledge and insights in general, and applied research, focused on concrete solutions to defined problems.
Setting standards: In order to ensure transparent contract negotiations, the contract research and cooperation models have been categorized and standardized under a binding set of rules and regulations with model agreement forms.
Building trust: Our research and commercial cooperations are built on ethically sound, professional relationships with our partners. A clearly defined code of conduct strengthens the trust of our partners and society in us.
Frequently used agreements for research and commercial cooperations are available from a secure download area. TUM employees can access this area with their MyTUM user ID. Templates and sample resources for third-party funding.
As a contacting platform, the Industry Engagement Program offers a first point of contact for companies who want to get to know TUM and its competences. On-site tours, annual Industry Days and newsletters provide insights into research and the latest developments at the university. In addition, experts give in-person advice on contacting suitable professorships.
