Heinz Nixdorf Institute

The Heinz Nixdorf Institute is an interdisciplinary research institute of the University of Paderborn. The aim is to develop intelligent technical systems. This is the result of the commitment of Heinz Nixdorf. On the way to these systems, computer science and engineering sciences grow together. With the help of innovative approaches and techniques, bold concepts for intelligent technical systems are developed that are adaptable and robust, act with foresight and are designed to be user-friendly. This will provide impetus for intelligent technical systems and corresponding services for tomorrow's global markets.

As a leading research institute, the Heinz Nixdorf Institute provides decisive impulses for practice. Scientists recognize tomorrow's problems at an early stage and work on their solution. The Institute is intensively involved in the teaching and training of students and doctoral candidates in order to impart the necessary specialist, methodological and social skills to the junior staff. Each year, about 20 young scientists complete their doctorates here. The research work of the nine professors and a total of 150 employees is oriented towards the programme "Dynamics, Mobility, Networking: A New School of Designing the Technical Systems of Tomorrow".
