In the past 10 years a research cluster in engineering science has been set up to create completely new materials as well as appropriate machines and production processes. To support the collection, storage and analysis of complex process data within that cluster several IT & process management methods and tools have been developed. Now entering the final stage of the cluster, the focus changes to the efficient usage of the created knowledge. To support the technology transfer process the previously created methods and tools are enhanced. In this paper, a software system supporting the controlled and secure transfer of engineering knowledge from research to industry is presented.
