We create new opportunities.
Research is not created in a vacuum, it is intended and carried out for people, for the economy and for society. That is why we attach great importance to exchanging information with stakeholders from a wide variety of fields as well as to informing them about our research results. From university to market, from technology to product, process or business model, from theory to practice: we ensure that research reaches its target.
Excellent research and teaching by linking people with expertise.
Application and benefits of research in new contexts.
Innovation guide and companion for new technologies.
New ways to license software and data.
Nucleus for technology and knowledge-intensive spin-offs.
Fostering the next generation of scientists in logistics.
Pupils test interaction between humans and technology
“Humans and machine – an inseparable relationship” was the topic of a course organised by the Leibniz Researc Centre for Working Environment and Human Factors at the TU Dortmund (IfADo) as part of the German Student Academy in the summer of 2018.
Master Plan reviewers praise “excellent transfer to the business world”
The Dortmund Council had adopted the Science Master Plan 2013 which included the decision to implement 100 different measures. Five years after the start the evaluation report is now available. According to the report, the Center of Excellence Logistics and IT will play a “decisive role in the framework of comprehensive research planning”.
“Escape Game”: Discover the latest technologies in just 45 minutes
The Center of Excellence Logistics and IT has developed an “Escape Game” to convey the latest logistic-technologies, in which participants use various innovative technologies to crack locks and codes.
doctoral students have so far graduated from the Graduate School of Logistics.
minutes were needed on average for a team to crack the Centre of Excellence’s »Escape Game«.
cooperation partners in the innovation ecosystem ensure transfer to business and society.
