Since the 1980s, Ulm University has been the driving force behind the Science City Ulm. The transfer of technology and innovation is an integral element in the self-concept of this research university. We aim particularly to support the competitive capacity of small and medium-sized businesses. This takes place by way of various collaboration formats and transfer structures, such as the Science Park or affiliated institutes (An-Institute) as well as numerous research clusters and projects in the realm of public private partnership. The partnership-based collaboration with the Universities of Applied Sciences in the region around Biberach, Neu-Ulm and Ulm is also dedicated to this purpose. In a national competition, the university alliance InnoSÜD recently acquired 15 million euros in funding over the next years. This strengthens the innovation transfer across the entire value creation chain in the Danube-Iller region as one of Europe's most dynamic economic areas.
