Research on Occupational Health and Safety can look back on a long history. Unfortunately, the results of this research are not manifested in public consciousness. Today, the biggest challenge to a scientist is to guarantee successful transfer between the research field “Occupational Health and Safety” and the actors in the sphere of practice. We cannot face the challenge by producing still more knowledge and research results, instead we need to restructure the whole transfer and the process of researching. In German research you may find different best practice that helps to optimize knowledge management. These best practices build on a new understanding of knowledge transfer, so called “transfer engineering”, and make use of governance and network management to support the policy about “Occupational Health and Safety”. Thus, research plans are structured in a novel manner, utilizing instruments of transfer in breadth and depth between scientists and practitioners and raising the visibility of a funding priority through its joint efforts on a topical core. These instruments of network management and transfer engineering will be the topic of this paper.
