Logo: Exzellenz Start-Up Center NRW  

The Collective Incubator is one of RWTH Aachen University's major projects for the future: a co-innovation platform for discussion between students, researchers and companies. Embedded in the environment of the University with its intellectual, infrastructural and technological resources, it creates an infrastructure that provides student projects, initiatives, founding teams and start-ups with the ideal environment for foundation and growth.

The Collective Incubator offers 3,600 square meters of space for student initiatives, flexible workstations and conference rooms, in addition to offices that can be assigned to start-up teams for a period of one year. The Maker Space - a workshop with over 1,200 square meters of usable space - features machinery for metal, wood, plastic, electronics and textile processing as well as 3D printing.

The Collective Incubator is part of the Excellence Start-up Centers.NRW project at RWTH Aachen University and is funded by the Ministry of Economics of North Rhine-Westphalia.
