On 15.11.2019 the shipyard01, a centre for artificial intelligence and innovation, was ceremonially opened with Düsseldorf's mayor Thomas Geisel

On Friday, Heinrich Heine University and All for One Group AG presented their new premises in the Rheinhöfe, Reisholzer Werftstraße 29, 40589 Düsseldorf to the public for the first time. At the ceremonial opening with 40 guests by Düsseldorf's Lord Mayor Thomas Geisel, Dr. Thomas Fischer, Member of Group Management Board All for One Group and Managing Director Allfoye, as well as Prof. Dr. med. Klaus Pfeffer, Vice Rector for Strategic Management and Equal Opportunities at Heinrich-Heine-University, presented the cooperation project and guided through the premises. From now on, researchers, students and medium-sized companies can use the workspace to explore the possibilities of modern technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and to develop a culture of innovation into an economic and regional competitive advantage. "AI will significantly influence and change many areas of research and teaching at Heinrich Heine University", says HHU Vice Rector Prof. Dr. Klaus Pfeffer confidently, "One of the key factors in this transformation process is to provide a space where people can come together, even in unusual constellations. With Werft01, the members of the university now have such premises at their disposal, in which the processes towards AI-supported research and teaching can be designed with creativity, joy and enthusiasm".
