The border area between Germany, Czech Republic and Poland is characterised by a low level of transnational cooperation between science and industry. Thus, the most important aim of TRANS³Net is to shape conditions for building up a well working innovation system in this tri-national region. This objective will be realised by establishing strong ties and a self-sustaining cooperation between key players of the innovation system and further actors of the scientific, economic and public sphere. By involving all key players relevant for knowledge and technology transfer, TRANS³Net will provide a solution to overcome the multifaceted obstacles concerning transnational cooperation between science and industry.

Documentation on the follow-up project TRANS³net.addon

In order to strengthen Trans³Net and to disseminate the achieved results, the project Trans³Net.addon was realized by CIMTT.
The project was funded by the Federal Ministry of the Interior, for Construction and Homeland, within the framework of the Federal Program Transnational Cooperation.

We would like to thank all participants in the project activities and offer the platform Trans³Net to support the further exchange of experiences via internet.

Network TRANS³Net

The network focuses on the continued promotion of transnational knowledge and technology transfer, in particular

  • Supporting the successful implementing of knowledge and technology in business
  • Supporting the strengthening of companies in the regions by an expedited transfer of usable research results

Subject to the availability of funds and the agreement of the partners’ authorised representatives, activities will be pursued in the following fields:

  • Improvement of cooperation for successful transfer
  • Expansion of the information base for effective transfer
  • Assistance with the transfer initiation

TRANS³Net plans to achieve its targets in the following ways:

  • involving other members in the activities of individual members, e.g. German-Polish Innovation Days, Transferweek, East Saxon Engineering Days, Innovation Exchanges
  • jointly organised events and public relations work to support transnational knowledge and technology transfer (esp. TRANS³net.show in the region once a year)
  • Using the existing project website (trans3net.eu) to disseminate information about transfer promoters, transfer events, and transfer-relevant funding programmes in the border triangle.
  • Providing information and disseminating event announcements etc. via partner-websites.

These activities are organised on a voluntary basis and are planned by individual members or by several members working together, participating in the activities and informing the network about them.

Join the Network!

On 20th September 2019 the project partners of TRANS³Net officially agreed the continuation of the work in the transnational network on knowledge and technology transfer TRANS³Net. With their signature they officially put the TRANS3Net-memorandum-of-understanding into effect.
