From developing complex software solutions and prototypes to coordinating R&D projects and opening up new user groups – the CINIQ Center has a long track record in the transfer of research results and presentation of complex technologies tailored to specific target audiences.
Ciniq Historie

Even when the Center opened its doors in 2013, CINIQ possessed a rich fund of experience in the transfer of technology and information as the THESEUS program, a research program initiated by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology, had already developed a broad spectrum of novel technologies for intelligent data management.

In 2010 the THESEUS Information Center was established as part of the Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute, as the body responsible for the technology and information transfer of research results. In this program the Center worked together with 60 partners and presented over 40 exhibits. For more information about the research results: CINIQ Center represents the smooth continuation of the successful THESEUS Innovation Center, offering space for cutting-edge applications and ideas.
