Discover the 10 work packages of the four research fields of the iCampus

The Innovation Campus Electronics and Microsensorics Cottbus – iCampus – is a research cooperation on the topic of microsensorics. The iCampus combines the application-oriented know-how of non-university research institutions and the research strength of the university.

The aim is to establish products in the field of microsensor technology and digitization together with small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Lausitz.

The iCampus is a science project from the federal government’s emergency measures for structural change in coal regions.
