As of 31.01.2023, the Corona isolation obligation in Saxony-Anhalt has been lifted. However, employees or people in their environment still fall ill with corona.

The internationally renowned Indian-American computer scientist Kalyanmoy Deb will give a technical lecture at our company on February 6, 2023. The scientist will talk about machine learning methods and their use in solving optimization problems. His methods are used by companies worldwide.



With the new Saxony-Anhalt Tariff Compliance and Procurement Act, the state parliament also resolved to introduce the Subthreshold Procurement Ordinance. On March 1, 2023, the VOL/A will be replaced, which will result in a large number of changes in procurement practice. The university administration is developing new procurement regulations and preparing a comprehensive training program.
