About us

InnoZent OWL e.V. is a technology network for sustainable corporate development through re-search, co-operation and innovation.

Continuity & reliability The registered association “InnovationsZentrum für Internettechnologie und Multimediakompetenz InnoZent OWL e.V.“ (Innovation Centre for Internet Technology and Multimedia Competence InnoZent OWL) was founded more than 20 years ago (1998) by users of IT technologies as a neutral body between development and application.

Trust & credibility Approx. 70 companies, universities, research establishments and business-related organisations are involved in our network. What unites us is the search for and application of new technologies for innovative products and services in a cooperative environment.

Value retention & openness Science & research, companies, multipliers, the political field and society are brought together by us as a neutral player in order to sound out and initiate new developments and competencies. While doing so, we are always at the cutting edge for new developments.

Tested quality & neutrality As a member of go-cluster (cluster policy excellence measure of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy) we are one of the 90 most powerful innovation clusters in Germany. As an association, we are committed to the purpose in our statutes and do not have any financial sales or personal interests.

Further information

For member companies getting started with new technologies things are made easier by means of the organisation of cooperation and the procurement of competent partners, the arrangement of events and fairs as well as by means of workshops and working groups. Current subjects are technology transfer, microsystems and systems integration. InnoZent OWL organises the complex transfer of knowledge and the often difficult communication with potential partners from different economic sectors.

The use of information and communications technology (ICT) as a cross-sectional technology in the development of new products and processes forms the technological focus of the network. That extends from the development of embedded systems as far as e-commerce activities.

InnoZent OWL promotes the exchange of experience and information between companies increasingly also informally by arranging contacts which often lead to cooperation. At the same time, the tasks, seen from the scientific/technical point of view, are becoming increasingly demanding, but also comprise growth financing and the increasing of flexibility by production cooperation.

Advice given for planning and the implementation of product innovations is currently the main task. Synergy effects due to the systematic exchange of the respective competences are at the same time often particularly profitable. The companies and research facilities can, moreover, in that way often limit the economic risk of the research and development projects for the individual with the help of cooperation.
