Wir freuen uns auf die Zusammenarbeit und beraten Sie gern.

The transfer of research results into the economy is our passion. HZDR Innovation enables scientists at the Helmholtz Center Dresden-Rossendorf to do both: research and business. We develop innovative product ideas from research to market maturity and offer start-up help for young technology companies. As an innovation incubator, we support spin-off projects at every stage of their set-up. HZDR Innovation is also involved in several spin-offs and own shares in these companies.

Support for Startups

Innovation incubator with all-round service

Scientists today, entrepreneurs tomorrow? In reality it is a long way until an innovative idea results in a successful company. In this way, the inventors need the right environment to develop. As an innovation incubator, HZDR Innovation offers this all-round service: from advice, coaching, financing, prototype development, the development of sales channels, marketing and the brokerage of equity capital.

Spin-off projects

Current projects on the way to a startup

In the spin-off phase, the scientists are given extensive support by the HZDR Innovation. The first market test is done by us. By integrating into an innovation ecosystem and further support from our partners such as dresden exists or Hightech Startbahn, our spin-off projects can take their first steps. Find out more about our current spin-off projects.
