Library

The Campus Library for Computer Science and Mathematics is the common library of the on-campus Max Planck Institutes, the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence and the Departments of Computer Science and Mathematics at Saarland University. In addition to 120,000 computer science and mathematics publications, the library also offers individual and group work spaces.

Technology Transfer: Entrepreneurship and Investing

In order to transform research results into products and licenses, all institutes of the Saarland Informatics Campus work closely with the entrepreneurship organizations of the state and federal governments. The on-site IT-Incubator, supported by the university, the state, and the Max Planck Society, helps scientists to protect their ideas with patents and to make them usable by business and industry, and supports the establishment of new IT businesses that provide numerous jobs for the region.
