Anniversary at the High-Tech Site

26.04.2018 in Featured
When the BioCentre opened its doors on the Weinberg Campus in 1998 it sparked the beginning of further development of the site. Five years earlier, the first Technology and Founders’ Centre had made its debut nearby. Both institutions were to become an interface between applied research, development and production. With it from the start was Professor Reinhard Neubert a long-time prorector of the university who later went on to found his own company. In an interview he talks about how the university was able to align itself in such a way to create synergy effects. Connecting university and non-university research is one of the Weinberg Campus’s secrets to success. One example is the company enspring that, alongside the Interdisciplinary Centre for Material Sciences at MLU, forms the basis of a competency centre for research into solid-state batteries in Central Germany. Proximity to MLU played a decisive role when the spin-off was founded.

“Flexibility is our advantage”

There from the start. Without Reinhard Neubert the Weinberg Campus would not have become what it is today.

The Weinberg Campus is a high-tech location. In the last 25 years around one billion euros has been invested in a site that is also the heart of the university’s scientific campus. The density of research institutes is high on the nearly 134-hectare site. This is accompanied by numerous successful companies that have often emerged from start-ups. Important drivers of the process are technology and founders’ centres. The first one opened in 1993 and the technology park was born. Professor Reinhard Neubert - a scientist, Vice-Rector and entrepreneur - is one of the pioneers of this development. He talks with Ines Godazgar in an interview.

Cutting-Edge Research Where Vineyards Once Grew

The area between the Heide district in Halle and the river Saale was used in the past for very different things. The land-use demarcation “vineyard” (Weinberg in German) was based on the fact that vineyards had been officially documented multiple times on this land since the 13th century. The fruit played such an important role in Mediaeval wine culture that in 1750 the chronicler Dreyhaupt compared the good wine to that of the Rhine Valley.

Knowledge transfer is only successful when it is coupled with excellent basic research. The staff at the Institute of Physics are doing just that. The institute is not only home to three collaborative research centres (CRC) of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) and one Alexander von Humboldt professorship. Its researchers have excellent international ties and have regularly attracted notice through articles published in renowned journals.

Employees at enspring GmbH on the Weinberg Campus are on the lookout for the ideal material for capacitors and lithium-ion batteries. They are able to take advantage of the excellent working environment and the university’s scientific expertise. Falk Lange, a PhD student at MLU and the founder of enspring, now also wants to gain a foothold in China. Hence, the story of enspring GmbH is also the story of basic researchers who have become business people active on the international stage.

From a vineyard to a technology park: The Weinberg Campus unites the natural sciences of the University of Halle in one location. It is also home to the University Hospital and many renowned non-university research institutions. Numerous successful companies have also settled in the technology and founders’ centres. This year the campus is celebrating its 25th anniversary. Several image galleries provide an impression of the innovation location and its central buildings.
