Knowledge transfer is a core task of a research institute. As far as the public is concerned, research results that are not published or presented do not exist. However, simple publication on its own is not enough. It is only when companies recognize and make use of the results that they become relevant.
At Fogra knowledge is transferred through various talks, consultancy and information services, courses and symposia, as well as the series of publications referred to here:
