The "Wissensort Wolfenbüttel", also known as "WOW!", was officially opened in Wolfenbüttel's city centre and presents itself as a place of encounter and learning with a special WOW effect, as Mayor Ivica Lukanic emphasised. The programme at WOW! includes a variety of events such as information evenings, network meetings, workshops and exhibitions on four key topics: "Energy, water, climate protection and new mobility", "Digitalisation, artificial intelligence and new media", "Innovative manufacturing and new working environments" and "Social change, health, participation and culture".

Mr. Lukanic emphasises the importance of discussions on topics such as digital transformation and the challenges of heat planning and encourages active participation. Ostfalia University is also involved as a partner. President Professor Dr Rosemarie Karger emphasised the importance of this collaboration in order to gather knowledge, promote innovation and disseminate findings, especially for the citizens of the Wolfenbüttel region. The "Wissensort Wolfenbüttel" is intended to be a place where current research topics and projects are presented and direct discussions with various stakeholders are facilitated, which is of great importance to the university.


Ostfalia University is organising an information event in the form of an exhibition on the project "NachOs: University Transformation - Sustainable Ostfalia" as well as sustainability-related projects and research plans until 30th April 2024. As part of "NachOs", a sustainability strategy is being developed for the university, ranging from student activities to research projects and science communication. Visitors to the "Wissensort Wolfenbüttel" (WOW) have the opportunity to find out about student and research projects on the topic of sustainability. In collaboration with researchers from Ostfalia, various information events on the topic of sustainability are organised for entrepreneurs, school students and the general public. The exhibition is open to all interested parties free of charge and can be visited during the opening hours of WOW! from Wednesday to Friday from 10 am to 2 pm.
