In July 2017, digitalHUB Aachen e.V. opened Germany’s first co-working space in a nave in the former church of St. Elisabeth. Here, start-ups, SMEs and industry exchange ideas about their projects in a creative lounge atmosphere – at flexible computer workstations in the central nave, on comfortable beanbags, in retreat niches, in modern meeting rooms or at the Elysée bar. The digitalCHURCH is also the location for the numerous networking events of the digitalHUB community.
With its unusual location in the modern styled former church, the digitalHUB is a beacon of digital change in the Aachen Area. As a digitalisation centre, the digitalHUB forms the nucleus for the up-and-coming district and the digital ecosystem of Aachen North. With the digitalHUB, the Technology Centre and the planned Collective Incubator in the Jahrhunderthalle, a hotspot for innovation is emerging in this quarter.
