  • Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg, Germany

Otto von Guericke University (OVGU) was founded in 1993 through the merger of three existing institutions to create a university with a distinctive profile, which in many areas is able to draw on a considerably longer tradition. This fact also dictates its areas of concentration in engineering, computer science, the natural sciences and medicine. New subject areas such as economics and management have been added among others. Furthermore the university considers the humanities, social sciences and education as essential components of a modern university with a distinctive profile.

OVGU’s research priorities – the neurosciences, dynamic systems/systems biology and automotive industry – are interdisciplinary in nature and strengthen a durable relation for institutionalized cooperation with other research institutes based in Magdeburg. OVGU endeavors to develop innovative strategies to strengthen regional and national businesses. The University stands at the heart of Saxony-Anhalt society and, in addition to research and teaching, also undertakes work to foster the development of society as a whole.

One important partner of Otto von Guericke University is the Fraunhofer-Institute for Factory Operation and Automation IFF. There is a long-lasting cooperation between the Fraunhofer IFF and the Institute of Logistics and Material Handling Systems ILM, which works on innovative methods and solutions that optimally organize logistics operations and systems and global production and service networks. ILM researchers pursue basic research to develop methods and tools for holistic analyses, modeling and simulation, strategic and operational planning, rapid mass production, reorganization, management, knowledge transfer and quality assurance.
