Project Lab X - the Startup Lab

What is the Lab X?

The Lab X is an interdisciplinary ideas workshop for creative, conceptual work, prototyping and the testing of demonstrators to promote spin-offs and start-ups. Lab X expands the support services and infrastructure available to founders at the university. The Startup Lab deliberately starts in the pre-founding phase and provides concrete technology-oriented support services for this phase. The focus of these offers is primarily on offers with a technical and organizational focus for the realization of proof of principles for later start-up ideas. The prerequisites are created to anchor innovative as well as entrepreneurial thinking and scientific innovation and entrepreneurial spirit in the individual faculties. Lab X with its technical infrastructure focuses on the working world of the future.
