Modern Ideas Behind Old Walls – IT Technology in Görlitz

Görlitz is famous for its extraordinary cityscape with top renovated buildings from five centuries, so highly innovative and modern IT solutions for the international market aren’t the first thing that come to mind with the Neisse city. But it’s worth taking a closer look, because behind the well-tended facades there’s plenty of space for dynamic developments and new ideas in IT technology.

In recent years, an impressive number of companies and institutions in this sector have established themselves in the university city, covering the entire supply chain from research and development to support and software testing. These include internationally established companies such as the software manufacturer niiio AG, based in Görlitz, which is playing a key role in shaping the banking of tomorrow with its FinTech solutions. Or the Erdmann software company, whose products focus on the complex infrastructures of railway networks around the world. Last but not least, the most important test center of the world’s largest software tester Expleo, with over 200 employees is located in Görlitz.

The economic development team at the Europastadt GörlitzZgorzelec Gmbh supports the industry in the search for skilled workers with various measures and interested new companies are supported in their search for commercial space and advised on funding. New and resident companies in the IT sector can network at the IT round table, for example.

 

IT Research: University of Zittau/Görlitz and the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft


With a total of more than 1,000 employees, local IT companies also benefit above all from their proximity to the Zittau/Görlitz University of Applied Sciences (HSZG) and the IT department. Evidence of this can be found in not only successful spin-off companies like QUANTEO Software Engineering GmbH, but also the close networks present.

The university offers the following courses: Computer Science, Information and Communication Management, Business and Computer Science

The Görlitz IT sector grew again in 2017 with the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft’s “Lernlabor Cybersicherheit” (cybersecurity learning lab), where processes and solutions for the IT security of critical infrastructures are developed. The researchers simulate cyber-attacks and look for weak points in order to detect hacker attacks more quickly and, above all, to prevent them.
