The transfer of results into the scientific community is just as important as the transfer of ideas, concepts, projects and results into industry, politics and society. This is especially true for a high tech region such as Stuttgart. Here, the transfer of knowledge is mandatory.
Our transfer concept to...
Apart from scientific papers to be published in international journals with peer review system and from presenting scientific results at national and international conferences, we take further steps in order to promote the transfer of our achievements in the scientific community. In particular, we have established a guest program to invite top scientists to cooperate with us during their stay at the University of Stuttgart. Furthermore, the SimTech Colloquium and seminars, international conferences and the archive of electronic pre-prints enable the efficient dissemination of our scientific results.
The institutes of the University of Stuttgart along with various cooperating close-by non-university institutions have strong relations to the local industry, global players and medium-sized enterprises. Especially our partnerships with institutes of the Fraunhofer Society and the German Aerospace Centre (DLR) are essential for a successful transfer of scientific results into application.
The Industrial Consortium SimTech e. V., a non-profit registered association, has been installed as the main platform for first-hand discussion with experienced partners from industry. Simulation science is promoted by supporting research and education, analyzing and initiating new developments and exchange of experiences. Large internationally operating enterprises as well as medium-sized businesses will guarantee the exploitation of our research and raise the awareness of our researchers of industrial needs.
We aim to raise the understanding of and the societal awareness about the importance of simulation science for today’s world of research and science. With public events like such as exhibitions, open days like the "Science Day" and public talks like the lecture series "Excellence in Dialogue" we show the importance and possibilities of simulation science to diverse target audiences.
