History (in German)
Innovation Centre Campus Bielefeld
Bielefeld Campus is expanding: In 2016 work began on the Innovation Centre Campus Bielefeld (ICB) in Morgenbreede overseen by the BGW, an association for housing and property services based in Bielefeld. The focal points of the Centre are the two technology fields of Intelligent Technical Systems and Molecular and Nano Sciences, which are firmly anchored in the University and in the University of Applied Sciences.
The 30 million Euro project is funded by the state of North Rhine-Westphalia and the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy who contribute 11.8 million Euros. The new Innovation Centre Campus Bielefeld is planned as an integrated centre. The area funded by the state NRW is aimed at start-up companies which are in the early stages of conception and development that need to be located in the immediate vicinity of the University. The area realised without funding offers existing companies the opportunity for further growth.
The Innovation Centre Campus Bielefeld is being built on a 6,425 m² piece of land at Morgenbreede, which was formerly used as a carpark. The complex consists of four building elements with a central entrance area and will be four stories (three stories and an offset upper story).
