Research Campus – Open Hybrid LabFactory

Partnership of science and industry on an equal footing

The “Research Campus” funding initiative supports universities, research institutions and companies which seek to enter into long-term partnerships to collaborate on a research topic.

The BMBF’s “Research Campus – Public-Private Partnership for Innovation” funding initiative supports large-scale and long-term cooperation between science and industry. This enables the exploration of complex and multi-faceted research areas which involve high research risks and hold particular potential for quantum leap innovations. The topics range from new methods of infectious disease diagnosis and the transformation of the energy system to materials development and innovative production technologies.

The Open Hybrid LabFactory e. V. (OHLF), TU Braunschweig and the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft provide this common platform for industrial partners and public institutions to accelerate research and development projects. The LeichtbauCampus is one of the top facilities in Germany for research and development of future hybrid components.

The funding initiative “Research Campus – Public-Private Partnership for Innovation” from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research was the initial impulse for the Open Hybrid LabFactory, which today is one of only nine Research Campuses nationwide. For the implementation of this Research Campus at the LeichtbauCampus, a consortium of designated scientific partners, market-leading industrial partners and highly innovative small and medium-sized enterprises with a spirit of a Silicon Valley are linked under one roof.
