An ecosystem for entrepreneurship, innovation, and transfer

With the central organization "Triathlon," the University of Saarland aims to provide impulses for the transformation of economy and society - thereby contributing primarily to the structural change of Saarland. In this context, "Triathlon" represents an expanded positioning of the University of Saarland within the framework of its social responsibility and thus a core element of its so-called "Third Mission."

Triathlon has set itself the overarching goal of promoting creativity, entrepreneurial spirit, innovative power, and enthusiasm for self-employment, integrating them into research and teaching, and initiating them across disciplinary boundaries. In addition, entrepreneurs and founders receive a target group-oriented and comprehensive educational offer that can be pursued alongside their studies and careers.
