TUM Food & Agro Center for Innovation and Technology (FACIT)

FACIT is a translation and technical infrastructure unit of the TUM School of Life Sciences Weihenstephan at the Technical University of Munich. Its main tasks are the transfer of research and the technical support of research and teaching. Thus, entrepreneurial and spin-off activities at the TUM School of Life Sciences are accompanied by the provision of a technical and intellectual infrastructure. The offer of an extensive workshop and technology infrastructure enables tailor-made research, teaching and start-up projects in the life sciences.

These tasks are realized by the two subunits TUM Life Science Tech Core Facility and TUM Venture Lab Food-Agro-Biotech. While the Tech Core forms the central workshop infrastructure for the TUM School LS, the Venture Lab actively supports and incubates university spin-offs. Both units are closely interlinked within FACIT to provide ideal conditions for the School as well as the associated research translation and to exploit the best possible synergy effects.
