About us


Humboldt-Innovation GmbH (HI) is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (HU). It is the privately organized technology transfer unit of HU collaborating closely with the Research Service Centre (Servicezentrum Forschung – SZF). HI’s goal is to foster innovation and to ensure successful commercialization of ideas and research for the use and benefit of society.

HI manages research co-operations, contract research and scientific services of any scale commissioned by commercial and public entities or government. HI also supports project resulting from CFPs (calls for proposals) including orders from federal ministries and/or sub-contracts from DFG or EU projects. HI administrates the project in its own name. Thus, scientists can focus entirely on their research. Please click here for more information.
New ideas and current research results are turned into innovations in compatible partnerships. The “Map of Research Expertise” facilitates finding suitable experts for your research project.
