Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship

​CIE Flyer​​
The creation and support of innovative business start-ups plays an important role at the University of Applied Sciences Jena. Since 1998, several projects have aimed at creating a suitable climate for the emergence of new business ventures. In this approach, the main focus is on the establishment of  a comprehensive entrepreneurship education as well as on the advancement of students’ start-up intentions.
One important milestone was achieved with the establishment of the „Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship“ (CIE) in 2004. It represents a cross-faculty research network concentrating on the experiences and skill sets in the area of entrepreneurship.
