The Technikum

Technikum Laubholz is an independent interdisciplinary research facility specialized in the development of innovative processes and products made from hardwood and other renewable resources for a sustainable life of tomorrow.

Technikum Laubholz was newly established by initiative of the State of Baden-Württemberg in spring 2020 under the auspices of the Ministry for Rural Affairs and Consumer Protection.

It aims to accelerate the development of innovative and high-quality applications for hardwood. Its mixed research model focuses on design-thinking as a creative driver to link basic scientific research and applied science as well as diversifying applications, cooperation, and funding opportunities. Enabling researchers to oscillate between abstract creative thinking and real problem-solving applications. This convergence offers the ability to develop abstract, creative, and great visions with real inventions, processes, and physical products to promote an internationally leading position for Baden-Württemberg in the diversified use of hardwood based resources.

Suitable locations in Baden-Württemberg are currently being examined for setting up Technikum Laubholz physically.


We strive to change the sustainable lifestyle of tomorrow and enable a sustainable growth of society and economy in Baden-Württemberg and the world. Facing major global challenges creating innovative products from brand new research and development. Stay up to date with what is happening around the newly founded Technikum Laubholz with the latest press releases, additional facts, and background information.
