Thinking today what will shape tomorrow

New ideas become real opportunities when thinkers and doers come together, when contacts become collaborations and initial thoughts become real actions. 

Our mission is to make this possible. As Hamburg Innovation (HI), we work where forward-looking knowledge from Hamburg’s universities becomes real solutions: As mediator and advisor, as initiator and coordinator, we connect the world of science with enablers from business, politics and society. 

As a broad-based team, we have an overview of the diverse know-how of Hamburg’s extensive university landscape and cooperating research institutions. We find economically effective inventions, support original spin-offs and strengthen new technologies as well as artistic concepts. We understand the creative minds of science as well as the energetic players in business and bring together what sometimes seems incompatible.

Together with our partners, we not only want to rethink the future, we want to leave a lasting mark on it. From global players to SMEs and start-ups to NGOs: together we turn research into innovation in action.
