Osnabrück reaches the next stage towards Industry 4.0: The Lower Saxony Ministry of Economics is funding the XR-InnovationHub with nearly 200,000 euros. Bitnamic is excited to be part of this innovative project to expand digitization in the Osnabrück area.


What is the XR-InnovationHub?

The XR-InnovationHub is a joint project of the iuk Unternehmensnetzwerk Osnabrück, the Wirtschaftsförderung Osnabrück (WFO), the Wirtschaftsförderungsgesellschaft Osnabrücker Land (WIGOS) and the consortium partners Bitnamic, Die Etagen, Halocline, mindQ, Third Level as well as the Osnabrück Healthcare Accelerator (OHA) and the start-up service of the WFO.

The hub primarily serves as an information center for small and medium-sized companies from the Osnabrück region that would like to

  • gain experience in the field of Extended Reality (XR),
  • learn more about the application areas of XR,
  • test XR applications live on site.

The funding makes it possible to finance the necessary hardware and software for XR technologies such as virtual reality (VR) or augmented reality (AR). The aim is to show companies the versatile uses and numerous application areas of extended reality and thus drive digitization forward.

The XR-InnovationHub is located in the startup center Osnabrück Healthcare Accelerator (OHA) and is expected to be accessible in spring 2022.

For more information on the Hub project (in German), please visit the Wirtschaftsförderung Osnabrück website.
