Universities are engines for innovation in society, business and technology. Here in Paderborn – with Ostwestfalen-Lippe regarded as one of the leading regions in Europe for industry and research – international standards are set. The basis for this is excellent research in the areas of high-tech, information technology and digitalization, the promotion of start-ups and close cooperation with regional, national and international industry. The transfer of knowledge between the university and regional players leads to an innovative research and application environment. Our research takes up current social issues and deals with them in a context-related manner. The inter-faculty cooperation between university professors and the continuous dialogue with partners in the region, in Germany and worldwide are essential for this development.
Our scientists benefit from the network of top universities, excellent research institutions and globally active organizations, also with regard to excellent career opportunities, cooperation possibilities and study programmes worldwide.
