As Germany's northernmost technical university, the Hamburg University of Technology provides impetus for the Hamburg metropolitan region and far beyond. In doing so, it plays an important role in the transformation of Hamburg into a knowledge metropolis, seeks dialog and cooperation with the business community, promotes start-ups, engages in social debates and socio-culturally enriches the city and the district of Harburg.
The transfer activities of Hamburg University of Technology are aligned with the focal points of the regional economy and Hamburg's five topics of the future and are professionally coordinated by TUTECH Innovation GmbH.
Together with research institutes and the neighboring universities in northern Germany, it is successful in research and teaching.
Internationally, the university cooperates with selected scientific institutions as strategic partners and is involved in the European Consortium of Innovative Universities (ECIU).
With the TU & YOU initiative, it has created a network for alumni, donors, friends and sponsors of the Hamburg University of Technology, and bundles all activities related to the topics of "endowments, donations, and sponsoring" under one roof.
