Research and development have a special status at Nordhausen University of Applied Sciences.
On the one hand, they create attractive and practice-oriented teaching due to their high application orientation. On the other hand, they enable competent problem solutions for industrial, economic and social issues through the intensive contact of the university lecturers with the regional economy.
In this section, we have compiled a practical overview of current projects in research, development and consulting for small and medium-sized companies. Detailed information on the range of services and competences, research and work priorities and laboratories and facilities suitable for cooperation with practice can be obtained from the Department of Research and Science Transfer.
The cooperation with research partners can take place on many levels. In addition to research services on direct customer order, cooperation in publicly or privately funded research projects is also conceivable. In addition, bachelor and master theses are a welcome and successful instrument in the transfer between university and industry for small research and development tasks due to their short processing times.
Nordhausen University of Applied Sciences has drawn up guidelines and rules to ensure good scientific practice (official announcement of Nordhausen University of Applied Sciences, issue 3/2004) and for dealing with scientific misconduct, which are part of the self-control in science at Nordhausen University of Applied Sciences. The guidelines for ensuring good scientific practice and the rules for dealing with scientific misconduct are based on the proposals of the German Research Foundation and have been applied at Nordhausen University of Applied Sciences since December 2005.
