Industrial Partners

Our collaborations with industry are too numerous to list them all. Collaborations exist on a personal, project, and institutional level, and several spin-off companies have been formed. We regularly participate in science fairs (such as the annual CeBIT fair), and several researchers have accepted seats on the academic steering boards of companies or policy-shaping institutions within the public sector (W. Wahlster, for example, is a member of the Research Union of the German Government that is advising the German government on the development of suitable high-tech strategies). Instead of listing all our activities, we therefore restrict ourselves to three major developments here:

BMBF Leading-Edge Cluster for Software Research (Spitzencluster)

European Institute for Innovation and Technology (EIT) ICT Labs

The Intel Visual Computing Institute (Intel-VCI)
