In the early years, companies involved in student projects on the HPI campus quickly discovered the excitement of the topics, which are researched and taught at the Hasso Plattner Institute. The wish soon grew among them to not only accompany student projects, but to actually drive innovation processes in their own companies. This customer wish was the initial spark for the foundation of the Hasso-Plattner-Institute Academy (HPI Academy) on March 20, 2009.
The HPI Academy has a broad portfolio in the areas of design thinking, IT and digitization.
Every year, around 3,000 professionals come to the HPI Academy for further training and to be inspired by the atmosphere on campus.
