We support non-profit associations and social institutions based in our home region on their way into the digital age.

Ongoing sponsored projects

Flugwissenschaftliche Vereinigung Aachen

The Flugwissenschaftliche Vereinigung Aachen 1920 e.V. (FVA - Aviation Science Assoc.) received a LANCOM 1781 EW+ for networking its workshop at Merzbrück Airport and its office at the Institute of Aerospace in Aachen. True to the motto “Research. Build. Fly”, students of the RWTH and FH Aachen who are keen on flying work with the association on the development of aviation equipment.

Chess club DJK Aachen

What does chess have to do with digitalization? It's straightforward: In the 1st Division of the Chess Bundesliga, chess is played in real-time so that every move can be watched online. To this end, the chess club DJK Aachen required digital equipment: a high-tech chessboard and figures. The equipment was sponsored by LANCOM.

Center for Social Work

The Center for Social Work is the largest and oldest youth welfare organization in Aachen and district, and it is committed to helping young people in difficult situations to find their way into a self-determined, positive future. We support the organization with our devices for connecting residential groups and internal networking.

Girls Day

Each year, LANCOM invites schoolgirls to the "Girls' Day" event. Together with our colleagues from hardware development and quality management, we have developed a program to give the girls an easily comprehensible insight into the basics of our daily work: "Hardware development for beginners – the assembly, soldering and programming of micro-controllers".

LANCOM on Mars expeditions by the Austrian Space Forum (ÖWF)

The Austrian Space Forum is developing a Mars spacesuit simulator. The development of the suit is a part of an international research program and serves as a concept study for a spacesuit for manned mars expeditions. Together with the University of Innsbruck and various research institutions all over the world, the ÖWF performs simulations of Mars walkabouts under extreme conditions in the mountains, in the desert or in caves to test the hardware under field conditions. LANCOM supports the ÖWF with hardware donations.

Educational cooperation

Heilig Geist Gymnasium Würselen

For many years LANCOM has been a partner of the HGG high school in Würselen. The cooperation was agreed in the 2009/10 school year, with signatures of the school directors and company management confirming the long-term and strategic partnership. The aim of the cooperation is to transfer knowledge to the pupils about career choices, our industry and everyday work. We have already completed award-winning projects together, such as the KURS Award in 2015 and 2017.

LANCOM awards scholarships to RWTH university students

As a part of the North Rhine-Westphalia Scholarship Program, LANCOM provides annual support to up to four students of the RWTH Aachen. LANCOM thus promotes promising IT talent, who can fully concentrate on their computer science studies thanks to the financial support. We are especially pleased about the fact that we can already count the first graduates among our colleagues.
