Hochschule Aschaffenburg is involved in numerous national, European and international research projects. Here you will find a selection:


Hybrid process laser workstation bridging nano-functional features to macroscopic devices

The funding comes from the Eurostars program. The cooperation partners are companies based in Munich and Belgium and the Applied Laser Technology and Photonics Work Group at Aschaffenburg University of Applied Sciences. The aim of the research is to develop hybrid processing technology for producing macroscopic components with 3D functional elements on a nano-scale.
Time frame: 01.01.2016 – 31.12.2018


Open Innovation Lab for Applied Laser Technology and Photonics

The funding comes from the European Regional Development Fund. The University's Applied Laser Technology and Photonics Work Group and the Laser Application Centre at ZeWis intend to activate the technology transfer on a broad front and to establish a regional competence centre.

Time frame: 01.08.2015 – 31.12.2020


Mainproject 2018

The funding comes from the European Social Fund. The project partners for the funding are the Information Management Institute (IMI) of Aschaffenburg UAS, Mainsite GmbH & Co KG and other regional businesses from Bavaria's lower Main valley area. External quality assurance will be provided by the FOKUS Fraunhofer Institute in Berlin. The objective is to transfer expertise in the area of company management and process management.
Time frame: May 2015 – April 2018


The funding comes from the BAYHOST program for bilateral scientific projects between the Czech republic and Bavaria. The cooperation partners are Prof. Thorsten Döhring from the Engineering Sciences Faculty Aschaffenburg University of Applied Science and Dr René Hudec from the Technical University in Prague. The objective is the development of X-ray mirrors for future astronomy satellites.
Time frame: January 2016 - December 2017


The funding comes from the EU Commission's 7th Research Framework. The project partners for the funding were the Universities of Bremen, Lausanne, Provence, Tel Aviv and Vienna, Sagivtech Ltd, Steinbeis, European Research Services and Genesis S.A. The objectives of the project included the development of new processes for data compression and transmission, thus combating the rising demand for computing capacity and the ever-growing volume of data.
Time frame: 01.09.2010 – 31.08.2013
