Sustainable Incubator

This new type of sustainability-oriented innovation incubator has been jointly initiated and developed by BÜFA, the Start-up and Innovation Center (GIZ) of the University of Oldenburg and the Barthels Stiftung and started its work in Nov. 2019. The innovative aspects are: (1) The explicit sustainability-orientation of the incubator; (2) The fact that a medium-sized company from a traditional industry (chemical industry) took the initiative as part of their sustainable business strategy and provides a unique location to realize the concept; (3) The collaboration between a company, a university and a foundation jointly create an incubator.
