areas of cooperation

In joint workshops DESY and HAW Hamburg identified several areas of cooperation. Here are some examples:

Cooperative degree programmes

Starting from the winter semester 2021/22, the new cooperative degree programme “Applied Computer Sciences” will be offered. DESY and HAW Hamburg have already been cooperating successfully for many years in the courses of study “Mechanical Engineering and Production – Development and Design” and “Electrical Engineering and Information Technology”.

DASHH – Data Science in Hamburg

HAW Hamburg has recently become a partner of the graduate school DASHH (Data Science in Hamburg, Helmholtz Graduate School for the Structure of Matter) which is coordinated by DESY. Four computer science professors at HAW Hamburg are actively involved in the graduate school's programme.

Research and development

Both partners want to continue to jointly advance transfer-oriented research and the development of new technologies. The focus is on areas such as robotics and scientific computing as well as integrated microelectronics and mechatronics.

Innovation and technology transfer

DESY and HAW Hamburg have the experience and competence to translate the results of research and development into practical industrial applications. DESY and HAW Hamburg are already working together closely in the Hamburg project “beyourpilot”, which supports knowledge-based spin-offs. Further transfer activities are to follow within the framework of the new strategic cooperation KAI.

Spatial development

A joint site is planned in Science City Hamburg Bahrenfeld, which is currently under construction, in order to expand and further develop the joint activities in the area of transfer-oriented research and in the area of start-ups.
