University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE)
[For this project: subcontractor of IUTA]
The University Duisburg-Essen is one of the 10 largest German universities with approx. 39,000 enrolled students and 4,500 staff members at two campuses. At the beginning of 2008 the Science Support Centre (SSC) has been founded as a central unit to support researchers by services ranging from research promotion, knowledge transfer and spinoffs, patents and exploitation of intellectual property rights, trade fairs and onsite service, research publications, communication and media. The services are intended to unburden researchers from administrative tasks and to enable a more effective and efficient project management.
