Der Think Campus is THE place for entrepreneurs, digitals, inventors, creatives, for researchers and scientists and thus THE innovation hub in Germany.
At the Think Campus everything is arranged for the development of innovations by interdisciplinary thinkers and agile processes. This methodology of innovation management, also called design thinking, is taught in Potsdam at the HPI – Hasso-Plattner-Institute and applied worldwide. The tool: each individual specialist. The objective: to solve new problems with inter-disciplinary thinking.
The Think Campus is Germany’s science location. No other city in Germany is home to more scientists per capita than in the Knowledge City of Potsdam.
In Berlin-Brandenburg metropolitan region, Potsdam enjoys enormous attractiveness and dynamics on account of its historical, cultural and international significance as a science hub. Right next door to the capital and metropolis of Berlin, the university city offers a very high quality of life for families, professionals as well as students, including all the structural requirements for a modern business location.
The Think Campus is embedded in the Märkische cultural landscape on the banks of the Jungfernsee.
