Services offered

We at the Department for Business and Transfer see our duties as three-fold: “advise - liaise - support” at the interface between the university and the local economy. We also carry out these duties in an external capacity, with businesses, associations, networks, etc., as well as an internal capacity, with professors, teachers, and students.

Furthermore, we are also actively involved with various externally funded projects that, for example, contribute to the region’s development or to making the university more accessible. We also organize networking events for companies, students and universities, as well as events for knowledge and technology transfer.

Transferring skills and qualifications you have already achieved so that they can be recognized for your studies may reduce your workload and possibly the course duration.

We can advise you on your options for having your achievements recognized and can put you in touch with the relevant contact for the course.

Transferring Skills

For all of our advice services, we can put you in touch with the right contact. Simply get in touch with the relevant contact in our department.

In cooperation with the Department for Research and Project Coordination, we also help to network with research partners for research or cooperative projects, and also offer support in the search for experts and auditors.

Projects

E^(E hoch B) -  Education as a catalyst for personal and regional development is a cooperation project between the Hochschule Kaiserslautern, the Technische Universität Kaiserslautern, and the Hochschule Ludwigshafen.

The universities involved have made it their duty to collaborate to develop a range of needs-oriented, scientific study courses. In doing so, on the one hand, they use the regional educational demand as a basis for developing an offering of courses, and on the other hand, they hope to make the university accessible to new target groups. The overarching goal is to make the universities involved into institutions for lifelong learning.

Open MINT Labs - virtual laboratories for increased learning success is a cooperative project between the Hochschule Kaiserslautern, Hochschule Koblenz, and Hochschule Trier. Multimedia learning materials are intended to supplement on-campus study, and facilitate learning. The combination of classic on-campus lectures and e-learning modules for flexible processing of the teaching content at any time or place is an enriching factor for the learning culture.

MobiPro.GR hat zum Ziel, die grenzübergreifende berufliche Mobilität von Studierenden in der Großregion bereits im Studium zu fördern. Die Projektpartner unterstützen Studierende mit Infrastrukturen und Netzwerken, welche die Umsetzung grenzüberschreitender Praktika, Praxisphasen, (binationaler) Studienprojekte und Abschlussarbeiten in Kooperation mit Unternehmen in Luxemburg, Lothringen, Saarland, Rheinland-Pfalz und Wallonien ermöglichen.

Ebenso werden Unternehmensbedarfe (F&E) im Bereich der Großregion mit Kompetenzen von Bildungseinrichtungen und Studierenden zusammengeführt. Hier profitiert das Projekt von an der HSKL im Referat Wirtschaft und Transfer vorhandenen Kompetenzen.

Begleitet wird dies u.a. durch eine grenzübergreifende online-Praktikumsbörse, grenzübergreifende Projektausschüsse und Stipendien.

An der HSKL werden zudem extracurriculare, der Kompetenzentwicklung dienende Seminare im Bereich interkulturelle Wirtschaftskommunikation entwickelt. Dies erfolgt über die Ausarbeitung zielgruppen- und bedarfsgerecht kombinierbarer modularer Formate, die nicht an eine Sprache oder Institution gebunden sind.

Das Projekt „MobiPro.GR – Mobilität durch grenzüberschreitende Projekte in der Großregion“ wird gefördert im Rahmen des INTERREG V A Großregion-Programms. Laufzeit 10/2016-09/2019.

Projektpartner: CNAM (federführender Begünstigter), Hochschule Kaiserslautern, ISEETECH, htw Saar. Strategische Partner:  IHK Saarland, IMG/GR-EEN, VAUS, Université de Liège.
