Our passion is innovation and entrepreneurship

The institute supports entrepreneurship in research and teaching with a cross-faculty approach that combines theory and practice. This includes the interdisciplinary connection between technology, science and management and the cooperation with internal and external partners, e.g. ARENA2036, STARTUP-AUTOBAHN, Cyber Valley, TTI GmbH, other universities & institutes.
