Heidelberg Collaboratory for Image Processing (HCI)

The Heidelberg Collaboratory for Image Processing (HCI) is an "Industry on Campus" project established in the context of the German excellence initiative jointly by the University of Heidelberg


and the following companies: Bosch, Heidelberg Engineering, Volume Graphics and Bayer


Robert Bosch GmbH Heidelberg Engineering


Established in 2008, the HCI is built on the fact that basic problems in image processing are largely application-independent. The approximately 80 scientists working in HCI conduct basic research with the aim of providing cutting-edge solutions to basic image analysis problems for applications in industry, environmental and life sciences. The HCI is part of the institutional strategy of the University of Heidelberg within the Excellence Initiative.
