HAFIS, a Helmholtz Transfer Academy, supports researchers in maximizing the impact of their research on society and the economy. Over a nine-month period, participants identify and implement transfer projects that align with their research and personal goals. This cycle focuses primarily on addressing climate change but also includes other highly relevant aspects, fostering creativity and bold ideas to tackle these urgent issues.

Why Intrapreneurship?

Intrapreneurship drives innovation from within organizations, leveraging existing resources and expertise to create significant societal impact. By fostering intrapreneurial skills, HAFIS helps researchers generate real-world impact based on their scientific findings.

With HAFIS, we are addressing researchers who …

… are interested in networking and exchange.

… want to get involved in transfer projects.

… want their research to have a direct impact.

If you know someone who would be a great fit, let them know that the next cycle starts in September 2024.
Applications are open until August 24th!
