Research and entrepreneurship
Hof University focuses on applied research that contributes to the further development of science, society and economy. Through close exchange with its partners regionally, nationally and internationally, it ensures successful knowledge and technology transfer with an optimal practical relevance for students. Particularly important is the transfer and start-up area, the latter is also expressed through a start-up center located close to the campus.
Hof University sees itself as an innovation driver for the region and makes the expertise it generates available to regional players. This transfer takes place via "heads" - well-educated graduates and scientific staff take the knowledge with them to their employers - and funded transfer projects with the regional economy. The activities are supported by the newly established research marketing.
