In addition to cooperating closely with industry, a number of projects create spin-offs. Leibniz Association employees wishing to establish a start-up company are provided with consultation and support by the Knowledge Transfer Working Group and Leibniz X, the Leibniz Association’s Science2Market consultancy. These spin-offs have around 560 employees (as of 31 December 2009).
