An optimal partnership is one that both sides profit from. In nature, we call this symbiosis. In Darmstadt: the HIGHEST club.

Partners and members of the HIGHEST club are right in the midst of it. Getting in touch with innovators with groundbreaking ideas, entrepreneurs, and young business owners. They also have access to events, exclusive content, and our campus-own labs – for free.

Want to be part of this amazing network? We’re looking forward to your application.

Meeting talent.

Members of the HIGHEST club are one of the first to learn about groundbreaking new developments of our students and researchers – and first in line for a partnership or collaboration.

Aside from that, you’ll also have access to our FabLab for developing or testing prototypes or collaborating with researchers on site.

Our members can also attend regularly organized events – for networking, inspiring conversations, or just to be the first to learn about a new groundbreaking idea from one of our researchers or students.

Ready, steady, member.

It couldn’t be simpler to get in: Simply send us an e-mail with your preferred date of entry. After receiving your mail, we will send you an invoice with the annual subscription fee (€1,877)
