Background information

Located in the heart of Cottbus, Germany, the Lausitz Science Park stands as a testament to the city's commitment to innovation, research, and structural development. This ambitious initiative is led by the Brandenburg University of Technology (BTU) Cottbus-Senftenberg, which has woven together foundational and applied research, innovative spin-offs, and a diverse range of corporate partnerships. The BTU, in alliance with the Ministry of Science, Research and Culture of the State of Brandenburg, has garnered support from revered institutions such as the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, the German Aerospace Center (DLR), and the Leibniz Association. This collaboration is further enriched by industry titans like LEAG, BASF Schwarzheide, Deutsche Bahn, and Rolls-Royce.

Envisioned as more than a mere research hub, the Lausitz Science Park promises a holistic community experience. With the capacity to accommodate 200 small to medium-sized enterprises, the park is set to be a bustling hive of activity. Complementing the professional environment are planned residential areas, daycare centers, and restaurants, ensuring a vibrant and balanced lifestyle for its inhabitants. The park's development is structured in two phases, anchored by a comprehensive science network and an operational arm for site management. In guiding this vision, the BTU has sought expertise from WISTA Management GmbH, known for their stellar work at the Adlershof Science and Technology Park in Berlin.

At the core of Lausitz Science Park's mission are its four primary research avenues: "Energy transition and decarbonization", "Health and life science", "Global change and transformation processes", and "Artificial intelligence and sensor technology". These multifaceted areas represent the park's dedication to bridging academic endeavors with real-world industry needs and societal challenges.
