The Transfer Prize promotes the development of transfer-related activities and/or the public presentation of knowledge-transfer achievements. The award comes with 20,000 euros in prize money.
The Transfer Prize is awarded to members of the University who are collaborating or have successfully collaborated with partners in the non-university sector. Such non-university partners include businesses, regional authorities, associations, unions, political parties and churches. Entrepreneurs from the University of Münster who cooperate with their former faculties or institutes during the start-up phase are also eligible to receive the prize.
The Rectorate is responsible for selecting the finalist on the recommendation of the Economic Advisory Panel of the Research Transfer Office (list of members). The award ceremony is held during a special session of the Economic Advisory Panel of the Research Transfer Office.
