"Tinder" by innovators for innovators

The AiF-InnovatorsNet platform offers companies, start-ups, research facilities or economic and scientific institutions comprehensive and, above all, needs-based information on applied research, further training and uncomplicated cooperation between national and international players from all sectors.

The network was founded by AiF Forschung Technik Kommunikation GmbH, a subsidiary of AiF Arbeitsgemeinschaft industrieller Forschungsvereinigungen "Otto von Guericke" e.V. "Medium-sized companies in particular are welcome here, because we see them as key players in the German economy," explains Jan-Frederik Kremer, co-founder of AiF Innovators-Net. "Around 900 companies and institutions as well as around 120 associations, networks and clusters are now an integral part of the community.

AiF InnovatorsNet was launched on January 24, 2024 after a comprehensive relaunch in a new, clear design. The "Hivebrite" software solution also makes it possible to post entertaining articles on the live feed and share more extensive news directly with the network. Selected news items are not only visible to logged-in members, but also on the AiFInnovatorsNet website. The numerous events are presented even more clearly. Projects can be presented in detail with extensive information in the InnovatorsNet project exchange. The new "Offers and Requests" section makes it even easier to search for project partners or new team members.
