Transfer of Knowledge and Expertise
Commensurate with the ever-faster transformation of the world, the volume of research findings is also consantly increasing, and established knowledge is broadening to include peripheral areas of interest. In this context, we organize a large number of events to support the transfer of knowledge and expertise. One of these is the annual IAB Science Days that host two events in one: the International IFF Conference and the Pipeline Construction Congress. It has become common practice for participants to present their own research findings and to discuss them with a broad audience. This is where industry and science meet to develop their ideas further, to gain new momentum and to lay the foundation for innovative products and technologies. For continuous technology transfer is the only way to ensure the ability to innovate of small and medium-sized enterprises.
Seminars and Workshops
The ongoing training programme off ered by the IAB is tailored to the specifi c interests of participants and includes a wide range of topics, uptodate information and a high quality standard. We regularly hold seminars and workshops in close collaboration with national and international associations. These events are dedicated to joint work on standards and guidelines and to the education and ongoing training of industry professionals.
Our academic activities also include guest lectures at universities and other institutions of higher education. We also supervise PhD candidates, Bachelor’s and Master’s theses as well as trainees.
Expert Reports and Opnions
Furthermore, IAB staff prepare expert reports and opinions, for which the Institute relies on the support of publicly appointed and sworn experts employed in-house.
