Südniedersachsen Innovation Campus


In the Südniedersachsen Innovation Campus (SNIC), the universities of the region, the districts of Südniedersachsen and the City of Göttingen cooperate with their business development agencies, the Chamber of Crafts as well as more than 20 partners from industry - which were won through the commitment of the Göttingen IHK (Chamber of Industry and Commerce) office - under the umbrella of the Südniedersachsenstiftung (Südniedersachsen foundation).

Südniedersachsen has a diverse and excellent scientific landscape. "It is our goal to strengthen the role of the region's universities as drivers of innovation," says Prof. Dr Kilian Bizer. He co-initiated the SNIC and, as coordinator of the major regional project, works closely with the SNIC office managed by Mascha Albrecht.

Through the targeted search for application-oriented research results, the financial and personnel support of technology consulting for companies and a broad range of support services for innovative minds, the SNIC contributes to making optimum use of the innovation potential between the Harz Mountains and the Weser Uplands.

Career-Entry Mentoring Brückenschlag+ [Bridging+]

The mentoring programme Brückenschlag+ is funded by the MWK (Ministry for Higher Education, Research and the Arts) and specifically supports students in the transition phase from university to a job. The focus is on mentees facing special challenges. This may be the case, for example, if students do not have any close family member who has studied him/herself (1st generation students), if they already have care responsibilities for children or dependent relatives, if they have an unconventional curriculum vitae and/or a migrant background.

The Staff Unit Cooperation and Innovation supports matching between mentees and mentors from business. I more
