That's us!

The SICP - Software Innovation Campus Paderborn at Paderborn University is an interdisciplinary research and innovation network in which companies and science jointly research and implement digital innovations. We develop solutions for completely new challenges in our digital society, but also implement application-oriented concepts and systems in an efficient, secure and scalable manner. With the new construction of Zukunftsmeile 2 (ZM2), we have realised a joint research campus where we are developing digital innovations in a particularly effective and agile way through close networking between science and business. We see the close collaboration between business and science as a key success factor in transforming research findings into marketable innovations.
