Collaborate with Industry

Your involvement with a company can take many shapes: sponsored contract research, share PhD student, collaboration, staff exchange or consulting services are the main means of engaging industry.

Collaboration with industry is a project-related and time-limited joint effort. The DKFZ researchers are increasingly interested in such contacts with industry because they give the scientists access to large devices, prototypes or other advanced methods, for instance high-throughput screening. A separate contract tailored to the particular project is necessary, which Innovation Management helps you with.


The process often looks like this:

  1. Scientist presents at a conference
  2. Industry approaches
  3. Follow-up (please sign a CDA through the Innovation Management)
  4. Shape a project plan
  5. Contact Innovation Management for a contract
  6. Innovation Management negotiates and finalizes the contract on your behalf.


Innovation Management also has access to databases, which can help you identify potential industrial partners, research them or help shape your idea through patent literature research.
