We are the
STIMULATE Association

The STIMULATE Association is focused on supporting research
and the associated distribution of scientific knownledge and findings.


About us

Since 2013, the STIMULATE research campus has been funded in the "Research Campus - Public-Private Partnership for Innovation" program of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). Since then, the network has been steadily expanded and numerous collaborations have been established.

The partners of the Research Campus STIMULATE are Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg, Siemens Healthcare GmbH, and the STIMULATE Association. These three partners have regulated their cooperation in the research campus in a cooperation agreement.

The research campus is always interested in cooperation with scientific and economic partners. In addition to short-term project-related cooperation, the Research Campus STIMULATE is open to other interested parties with complementary competence profiles via the association.

Young Talents

The STIMULATE association is also dedicated to promoting young scientists. We include many committed companies from our region and beyond.

Are you interested in robots, 3D printers, artificial intelligence or virtual realities? Would you like to start an unusual project or do you have a concrete project idea for a school competition or a project week? Would you like to go on an exciting excursion with your school class or computer science group?

We support you and your school in planning, arranging contacts, access to high-tech research equipment and last but not least in financing your project (up to 1000 €). Bring your ideas, your know-how and your commitment. Together we will make your project possible.


Let's implement your project ideas together! With strong partners from industry and research, state-of-the-art medical equipment and intelligent software, and your potential, we can make a lot of things possible. We not only support you in project planning and implementation, but also promote the project financially upon application.

You do not have your own project idea, but still want to participate? No problem, just participate in existing projects or we develop something completely new together with your supervisors.

Working groups & interdisciplinary teaching projects

You want to learn more about medical imaging techniques, their visualization possibilities and human anatomy? Are you interested in computer-assisted surgery, medical visualization or biometric image processing? Then join us on a journey of discovery! We enrich and support your lessons or your study group with interesting demonstrations.

Studies, training & internships

You'll soon be finished with school? Here in Magdeburg at the STIMULATE research campus, we have a lot to offer. At the University of Magdeburg, you have the opportunity to study mathematics, computer science, computational visualistics, electrical engineering, medical engineering and much more.

You would like to get a taste of research at the same time? Many of our members and partners have exciting topics for school internships, bachelor or master theses or offer dual studies. Contact us, we will be happy to put you in touch with the right contacts.
