Institute of applied research and partnership with industry (IAFW)
As one of the central facilities of the university, the IAFW acts as an interdisciplinary umbrella organization for all research activity at Ostbayerische Technische Hochschule Regensburg (OTH Regensburg). The IAFW creates a bridge between applied scientific research and industrial practice by promoting the exchange of knowledge and technology, and enables university co-operation with business and industry on the highest levels.
This process benefits companies, who not only gain access to the latest insights and results, but also have the opportunity to discuss concrete challenges and problems with university specialists.
Under the aegis of the IAFW, numerous centres of competence have been set up. These include sensor engineering mechatronics, nanotechnologies, IT security, software engineering, bioengineering and logistics. Cooperation with various regional and nationwide networks is an additional area on which the IAFW focuses its activities.
