Knowledge and Technology Transfer

The main foci of the Leibniz Institute of Astrophysics Potsdam (AIP) are cosmic magnetic fields and extragalactic astrophysics, but spectroscopy, robotic telescopes and E-Science are also areas of expertise. The AIP is part of an excellent research network through its intensive collaboration with numerous national and international science institutes and in cooperation with industry, AIP uses its proficiency and experience to advance innovative projects.

The Knowledge and Technology Transfer (KTT) department is the result of the excellent fundamental research of the AIP. In accordance with the transfer motto of the Leibniz Association - “theoria cum praxi: science for the benefit of the people” - these research findings are made available to the public and industry through many transfer activities.
