cooperation in application and innovation

Educating, researching, developing and creating new perspectives – together: the German research centre DESY and the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (HAW Hamburg) have agreed on a new strategic Cooperation for Application and Innovation (KAI).

The list of areas of cooperation ranges from real-time control technologies for highly complex accelerator facilities, through visual simulation and robotics, efficient energy systems, scientific computing, intelligent sensor systems, spectroscopy and measurement data processing, embedded electronics and electronics development, all the way to scientific illustration. There are plans to further extend this range of topics.

The cooperative venture will focus on cooperative degree programmes and teaching, research and development as well as innovation, technology and knowledge transfer. KAI is to strengthen the joint training of urgently needed highly qualified engineers and scientists. KAI will help shape Hamburg’s structural transformation to become a science and innovation metropolis in the north, through applied research and by developing sustainable and digital technologies.
