The Heinz Nixdorf Institut is an interdisciplinary research institute of the university of Paderborn. We sketch concepts for intelligent technical systems, which are pliable and robust, which act with foresight and are friendly to use. This requires new approaches and technologies that we deliver. Our main idea is a new theory for designing technical systems from tomorrow.
Innovation needs top forces: Hence, we provide professional competence, methodological competence and social competence, which will be inevitable in the future, to our younger generation and prepare them to take over of responsibility in economy and science. Every year there are about 30 up-and-coming researchers writing their doctorate thesis with us.
