Technology Transfer for the Max Planck Society

Max Planck Innovation is responsible for technology transfer from the research institutes of the Max Planck Society.

The Max Planck Society (MPG) operates as Germany’s most successful organization in basic research and is worldrenowned for its cutting-edge research. In many cases this cutting-edge research also forms the basis for innovative products and services that are implemented through licensing and spin-off companies.

Thus we perform an important task: the transfer of basic research results into products, which contribute to the economic and social progress.

50 years of Max Planck innovation - 50 years of technology transfer for the Max Planck Society

Max Planck Innovation celebrates its 50th anniversary. On this occasion, MaxPlanckResearch reports on success stories, researchers and founders, companies, perspectives and the path from ideas to products.
