Since being established in 2008, the Bauhaus Transferzentrum in Weimar has been successfully leading interdisciplinary mediation between academia and industry.
The BTD also offers further training for small and medium sized businesses and young designers, to support networking.
The Bauhaus Transferzentrum supports the development of innovative ideas by working as a competence center for the realisation of design projects.
Design processes are geared towards specific target groups with market-specific needs and are established as a strategic element of corporate culture.
The BTD develops projects in the field between product design and research. It connects the technology expertise found in Thuringia with forward thinking design and communications strategies.
With young designers the BTD develops products which are then sold in the Bauhaus.Atelier and its online shop.
