About OFFIS e.V.
A fast knowledge transfer from research into the economy in competition with international competitors is the deciding foundation for the economic, as well as the social, well-being of a country. We have made this transfer our task: As an associated institute of the Carl von Ossietzky University in Oldenburg, OFFIS has, since its formation in 1991, converted scientific know-how from computer science into prototypes that are then further developed into marketable products by economic partners. Hereby, OFFIS provides research and prototype developments for companies and institutions – and this at the highest international level.
Energy, health, and transportation – these are the three application-oriented research and development divisions that are now the OFFIS structure. The divisions are pervaded by the knowledge gained from the different fields of technology. The result of this work takes effect on two levels: On the one hand, OFFIS has made nationally, as well as internationally, a name for itself as a Center of Excellence for chosen applied fields of computer science, and OFFIS developments are used by industries and institutions throughout the world. On the other hand, OFFIS recognizes itself as an innovations motor concerning regional politics through which knowledge remains local, and new sustainable jobs are established for northwestern Germany.
Furthermore, OFFIS promotes the process at the interface between research and product development with the creation of start-ups and the support of spin-offs. The strong commitment of OFFIS as host of symposiums and seminars for training and further education, as well as on an institutional basis with the “Berufsakademie für IT und Wirtschaft Oldenburg” follows the same course.
