In our research, as in our teaching, we place great emphasis on scientific excellence, practical and close cooperation with industry. With its research programs and specialized fields, HPI is a leader in the pioneering research of IT systems.
At the Hasso Plattner Institute, we explore the foundations and applications of complex IT systems. Today, these are at the center of almost every organization. We take into account the entire life cycle of these systems as well as user requirements. Our students benefit from this approach – both in teaching and as a member of our research teams. Through collaborations (link to new page), publications and events, we disseminate our findings to the public with the aim of actively shaping and advancing the digital age.
The “HPI Future SOC Lab” is a cooperation of the Hasso-Plattner-Institut (HPI) and industrial partners. Its mission is to enable and promote exchange and interaction between the research community and the industrial partners.
