Transfer of Technology
There is a close collaboration between RWTH Aachen University and its so-called "Affiliated Institutes." As a rule, these are funded by industry associations and companies.
Affiliated Institutes are research institutions that are legally, financially and organizationally independent from RWTH Aachen. The specific details of the collaboration are set out in an agreements between the institute and the University. The status of Affiliated Institute is granted by the Rectorate of RWTH Aachen University.
Access is an independent research centre associated with the Technical University of Aachen (RWTH) in Germany. 50 engineers and scientists are pooling a diversity of individual skills to merge both scientific and technological know-how in materials and processes with a special focus on metallic materials and casting processes. Excellence in science demonstrated in application is the leitmotiv! High end products for turbo machinery are outstanding examples for this approach. Scientific expertise and technological skills are transferred into best practice examples.
