Business meets science at Jacobs University


January 19, 2017

Bringing entrepreneurs and self-employed persons together with researchers, intensifying contact – that is the idea of the event series “Business Meets Science” of the Bremen Chamber of Commerce – IHK for Bremen and Bremerhaven. On January 26th at 7:00 p.m., representatives of both sides will come together to share experience and opinions on the campus of Jacobs University.

For which main research areas does Jacobs University stand, what projects are being worked on there? For business representatives, this is a good opportunity to get to know the international university better and to discuss current topics and their own research concerns with the scientists. Because the goal of the event series is to strengthen the transfer of knowledge and technology in Bremen.

For instance, Professor Werner Nau, Dean of Jacobs University, will present the research areas in the Focus Areas of Diversity, Health, and Mobility. In addition, projects will be presented as examples of cooperation with businesses – such as the Bremen company Statex, which uses thermally and electrically conductive, antibacterial, antistatic, and shielding materials to produce safety suits for industry, as well as intelligent clothing, and also maintains a close communication with scientists at Jacobs University. Another example is the intensive co-operation between Atlas Elektronik and Jacobs University addressing the challenge of transferring signal data from numerous acoustic sensors along a cable that was originally designed for electric power supply purposes, only.

The evening event will conclude with an informal get-together of business representatives and professors from a wide variety of disciplines.
