Two bridge builders

Ariane Derks, Managing Director of the Lausitz Science Park, and Dr. Jakob Pohlisch from the Cottbus Energy Innovation Centre (EIZ) showed what successful collaboration can look like at the lecture on 6 December 2023 as part of the Open BTU event series on the topic of "Shaping the future of Lusatia with BTU".

As representatives of two major structural change projects, they vividly explained to interested parties how a science and technology location with international appeal is to be created on the former Cottbus airfield, which partnerships with non-university research institutions and companies already exist and how the long-term competitiveness of Lusatia is to be strengthened.

In the end, a lively discussion developed about possible locations, our investment landscape and regional challenges. Everyone was curious about what will emerge in Lusatia.

Many thanks to the BTU's Centre for Continuing Education for this exciting exchange!

Don't miss it: The next discussion and lecture evening will focus on the new dawn in Lusatian coal country.
