Hinter dem Berg II Änderung Ehningen (former Quantum Gardens)

In the summer of 2022, the OZEAN Group acquired the former IBM site in Ehningen, which covers approximately 9 hectares. Due to its location in close proximity to Stuttgart with direct access to the A81, Ehningen is an excellent business location. The Stuttgart metropolitan area is one of the leading economic regions in Europe. Big players and quality-conscious medium-sized industrial companies in the automotive and technology sectors are located here and export their expertise far beyond the borders of Germany. This is exactly where we plan to connect with our project on site. Through close cooperation with the Fraunhofer IAO and their scientifically supported research, a residential tech campus is to be created in the area. Currently in the planning stage is an urban area that has a mixed use of commercial and residential properties. Our focus in Ehningen is also on expanding the infrastructure and making a positive contribution to community development. The area is intended to become an important part of the community.

The following presentation gives an insight into the vision of the Fraunhofer IAO for the IBM Areal Ehningen:

Open Day at the Q.AX

Ehningen, 26 July 2023 - Yesterday, the open day of the Quantum AI & Experience Center (Q.AX) took place in Ehningen. Numerous Ehningen citizens came by to immerse themselves in the fascinating world of quantum technology. Visitors were able to experience quantum computing, machine learning and AI at first hand using the demonstrators and through exciting experiments on site in the VR Lab with Mike Letzgus, Future Corporate World with Doris Janssen and the Physics Lab with the Fraunhofer IAO: Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Engineering team around Dr Christian Tutschku. But the focus was not only on technology: we also took the opportunity to inform about our future project Quantum Gardens. There was a lot of interest in the project and the team of the Ozean Group GmbH with Denis Matokovic and Thimo Klumpp were available to answer all questions in the Quantum Cities area. In addition, Jan Gienau presented his Quantum Gardens model at a presentation in the Q.AX Conference Hall. At the Ozean Group GmbH stand, Jessica Rannacher and Steffen Heckele provided visitors with comprehensive information about the group of companies.

The open day was a great success and we look forward to more informative events! Many thanks to everyone who came by. Another big thank you goes to Lukas Rosengrün, Mayor of Ehningen, for his participation in the event.
