Societal and Economic Impact


Applied research at TUHH often leads to the specific implementation of research results in processes, facilities, demonstration objects and public buildings.

We invite you on a journey of discovery where TUHH is "INSIDE" Hamburg, Germany and the world!

The results and processes of university research are also measured by their influence on the economy and society.

This section presents research topics of particular relevance to society, fields of activity, events as well as TUHH projects and cooperations with industrial partners.


The TUHH sees itself as an engine of innovation. It actively promotes dialogue between companies and scientists, especially in the Hamburg metropolitan region. Knowledge transfer to industry, business and civil society are important elements in TUHH's actions, as is the promotion of spin-offs.
