The Innovation Centre for Bioenergy
Together with its partners, the Innovation Centre for Bioenergy bundles the competences of the Leipzig region in the field of applied bioenergy research. With research institutions such as the DBFZ, UFZ and the University of Leipzig, it has an excellent location profile in the context of regional energy and sustainability research as well as innovation research.
The goal-oriented offer of comprehensive services in the innovation process is primarily aimed at small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the Leipzig region. The aim is to speed up innovation processes - i.e. to develop and secure a product or service idea right through to market launch. Interested companies can acquire individual service modules for successful innovation processes on a modular basis. This begins with the securing of know-how with intellectual property rights and patents. The Innovation Centre offers all the necessary services, from financing developments, linking up with important partners, promoting ideas to joint research and further development or drawing up business plans.
NEU e.V. as the sponsor of the Innovation Centre cooperates closely with the DBFZ in the provision of research infrastructure, knowledge and premises. There is close cooperation with the Fraunhofer IMW in Leipzig, specialized in innovation research and transfer processes, and the Leipzig law firm Köhler und Kollegen in the acquisition of private funding, patent and trademark protection. Cooperation agreements are currently being prepared with the HTWK, the UFZ, agil GmbH as well as the founding initiative smile and HHL
