Campus of Ideas

What is the Campus of Ideas?

Universities are true think tanks. With the Campus of Ideas, we spent a semester promoting inventiveness, innovation and networks across the boundaries of disciplines, faculties and status groups. The focus was on how ideas can be generated and implemented efficiently, pragmatically and with great motivation.

The Campus of Ideas included numerous actions such as workshops and lectures, hackathons and the HHU Ideas Competition - all with a focus on idea generation, implementation and innovation.

These activities were organized by various HHU institutions throughout the HHU campus during the summer semester of 2022. These focused on topics such as design thinking, NoCode, startup stories, digitalization and sustainability. All events took place on campus and at our partners.

On the lawn in front of the ULB we could offer you our PopUp-Coworking from May 12 to July 8, 2022. Here we were available for feedback talks on ideas, for general information and questions. But this was also the place to meet, where all participants could exchange ideas with each other. And a place where workshops, lectures and small events and actions took place.

Our video captured a few snapshots of this unique event at the HHU for you.

Vision and Mission

The aim of the Campus of Ideas is to bring together students, researchers, citizens from different (subject) areas, cultures, business sectors, etc. at events and activities. At the HHU, we want to promote a wealth of ideas, innovations and networks across the boundaries of disciplines, faculties and status groups.

It is about the transfer of knowledge and know-how and about methods for the structured processing of ideas. The focus is on empowering people to generate ideas and implement them with great motivation. Across the university, we want to enter into a discourse about the social and economic benefits as well as opportunities and risks of innovations.

An inclusive space is to be created in which all participants can exchange, support and inspire each other without restrictions in order to implement their ideas and thus help shape our future.

The Campus of Ideas is intended to be a place that connects people with each other and enables them to release their creativity and implement their ideas.

The organization of the Campus of Ideas comes together at CEDUS, where the idea for the campaign and many of the measures originated, and where most of the threads ultimately come together.

The Center for Entrepreneurship Düsseldorf (CEDUS) at Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf is committed to a lively, collaborative start-up culture - both here at the university and in the region. Whether in our office hours or a speedback session, whether in a classic start-up consultation or at one of our numerous events: We are your contact for all questions about self-employment and starting a business.
