The launch event is one of many different opportunities for companies from the region of the Upper Rhine to get information about the project, become a part of the network and to contribute their experiences and desires about the project early on.

The partners of KTUR include twelve universities and colleges of the upper Rhine region, among them the University of Koblenz-Landau with the Central Institute of scientific Entrepreneurship & international Transfer (ZIFET). Throughout the last twelve months, the project team, in exchange with network partners, platforms, economic development, the chambers of industry and commerce and various companies, identified Best-Practice-Solutions and defined potential for improvement for the collaboration between science and business. The pilot measures, which were derived from this are now being put into action and evaluated with the involvement of around 100 companies.

The EU financially supports KTUR as a part of the program INTERREG V with 1.6 million Euros. On the Swiss’ side, the project is supported with federal- and canton funds.
