Knowledge Transfer

A fast knowledge transfer from research into the economy is the crucial foundation for the economic, as well as the social well-being of a country. We have made this transfer our task: As an associated institute of the Carl von Ossietzky University in Oldenburg, OFFIS has, since its formation in 1991, converted scientific know-how from computer science into prototypes which are then developed further into marketable products by commercial partners. Hereby, OFFIS provides research and prototype developments for companies and institutions  – and this at the highest international level.

R&D-Divisions and Competence Cluster

Energy, Society, Health and Manufacturing – these are the application-oriented research and development divisions that are now the OFFIS structure. The divisions are pervaded by the knowledge gained from the different fields of technology. The result of this work takes effect on two levels: On the one hand, OFFIS has made nationally, as well as internationally, a name for itself as a Center of Excellence for chosen applied fields of computer science, and OFFIS developments are used by industries and institutions throughout the world. On the other hand, OFFIS considers itself a driving force for innovations, with concerns for regional politics through which knowledge remains in the region, and new sustainable jobs are established for northwestern Germany.

Commitment

Furthermore, OFFIS promotes the process at the interface between research and product development with the creation of start-ups and the support of spin-offs. The strong commitment of OFFIS as host of symposiums and seminars for training and further education, as well as on an institutional basis with the “Berufsakademie für IT und Wirtschaft Oldenburg” follows the same course.
