From research into practice, from the idea to the enterprise: scientists and academics from Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg successfully cooperate – regionally, nationally and globally – with enterprises and institutions of all sizes and from all sectors of industry. Both bilateral projects between companies and individual University institutions, and the involvement in collaborative projects with several partners from research and industry play an important part in this.
OVGU concentrates existing excellent research whilst creating new synergies in Magdeburg as a hub of science and technology. The continuous cooperation with industrial partners ensures that the newly developed methods and processes are quickly integrated into the economy. As a consequence there is direct feedback between research and practice and real-time use and exploitation of current research findings. The synergies that come about enable an improved exchange of knowledge between fundamental and applied research.
In recent years, the University has acquired new partners from industry and research for joint research projects, especially in the automotive, medical technology, fluidised bed technology, dynamic systems and renewable energies fields.
