Business start-ups are an important mechanism for the transfer of knowledge and innovations from universities. That is why, for the fifth time, Stifterverband examines and compares what efforts universities are making to strengthen the start-up culture in Germany. The data is compiled into a PDF called Gründungsradar (or the start-up radar) with the ranking of the universities divided into several different categories.
According to the survey, we came in first place in the following 3/6 categories:
- Top small universities according to institutional anchorage (page 27)
