Science and technology combined in the Harburg Innovation Park 

Technology Centre:   

a space for innovations 

Urbanity and synergy: The innovation park in the vibrant location of Harburg is characterised by dynamic development and continuous growth in the field of research and technology, which is also thanks to a number of private investors. The location offers excellent conditions for the transfer of knowledge between businesses and universities, such as through the local technology transfer company TUTECH.

The Harburg location enables both young and established companies to draw from the expertise of a broad range of scientific institutions. The Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH), which serves as the anchor institution, is planning to create additional chairs in the area of digitisation and engineering, and the Fraunhofer Center for Maritime Logistics and Services CML is scheduled to relocate to the Channel Hamburg.

TUTECH Innovation GmbH, the TUHH’s knowledge and technology transfer company, is dedicated to supporting cooperation projects between science and industry by providing knowledge-based startups with state-of-the-art infrastructures at the Innovation Campus Green Technologies (ICGT). Together with the local Startup Dock, TUTECH also advises and supports new business ventures from the higher education sector.

Various residential and hotel projects as well as a number of initiatives by private investors are accelerating Harburg’s transformation into a highly innovative quarter that comprises extremely well connected individual sites. Overall, this location provides outstanding conditions for translating innovative ideas into marketable products.
