Knowledge and technology transfer is a statutory task of Lower Saxony's universities. Industry and science benefit from this in equal measure: Scientists can take current issues from industry into account in their teaching and research and obtain additional research funding through projects. Companies can reduce their own research and development costs through their contacts with the scientific community and use the results exclusively through research contracts. The Lower Saxony Ministry of Science and Culture provides support in this regard.

Particularly against the backdrop of globalization, it is essential to ensure sustainable development in agriculture and food. The Lower Saxony Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Consumer Protection provides important impetus in this regard.
