Partners & Collaborations

People we want to thank..

Besides financial support our partners provide us with workshop spaces and are helping us face challenges with their know-how. We want to thank all of our partners, without whom this project wouldn’t be possible.

Main partners

robospace gGmbH

The robospace gGmbH supports aspiring young adults and children from Lower Saxony with their schooling in the robotics field. The main emphasis is placed on pupils from the Region Hannover. The robospace gGmbH is the project owner of the Roberta RegioZentrum and therefore also of the robotics student team i-bots. The company is embedded deeply into the didactical infrastructure of the Region Hannover and offers us, besides their financial support, additional assistance in answering organizational and educational questions.

Volkswagen Nutzfahrzeuge

The Campus Digitalisierung of the Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles Group supports the Soccer Team on the one hand financially and enables us consequently to develop our new robot generation. On the other hand we are honored to welcome apprentices of their Campus into our Soccer Team. We receive not only help in our Software, but also in the Hardware Division. For instance the Campus Digitalisierung can help us manufacture parts for which our workshop capacities would be insufficient.


Georg Böttcher – Independent financial planning for

Georg Böttcher accompanies students in all career and financial matters. From securing your first own assets during your studies to starting your job and achieving your individual goals.
With his many years of experience and specialization in academics, Georg Böttcher serves as an independent contact person for all members in questions regarding career and financial planning. In addition to the special soft skills workshops for team members, you can find many more free workshops on the topics of career and finance during your studies on the website

SKS Kontakttechnik GmbH

We would like to thank our sponsor, SKS Kontakttechnik GmbH, for their generous support. Thanks to their donation of high-quality laboratory measuring cables and the associated measuring technology from the renowned Hirschmann Test & Measurement brand, we can carry out effective and precise measurements of our electronics.

We are proud to have SKS Kontakttechnik, a leading specialist in connectors and contact systems, by our side, and we sincerely thank them for their valuable support.

Multi-CB circuit boards

Many thanks for sponsoring high-quality circuit boards on which new interested members were able to solder their first resistors, capacitors and LED lights at a workshop. The results are really impressive!

Our partners at the university

Leibniz University Hannover

The Leibniz University Hannover is the luhbot’s home. We greatly appreciate them providing working spaces, digital infrastructure and financial support. Otherwise the team luhbots could not exist. The university helps us face the challenges of modern robotics by providing a variety of technical classes for our student members. We try to satisfy the curiosity won in the classes of the different institutes as best we can.

Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science

The Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science of the Leibniz University Hannover has been providing us for a few years with working spaces and financial support. Additionally, we can always find a consultant here if we have any organizational questions. Many of our students are part of the faculty, deepening our connection to this department. We broaden the faculty’s course selection, by offering two tutorials in the module General Studies and other interesting student research projects.

Faculty of Mechanical Engineering

The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of the Leibniz University Hannover has been offering resources since the beginning of 2021 so that we can participate in RoboCup competitions. Similarily to the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, we also offer tutorials and student research projects here. Additionally we represent the faculty on fairs and exhibitions.

Institute of Automatic Control

We are happy to be working with the Institute of  Automatic Control. During monthly meetings we resolve important organizational topics together. Furthermore a considerable amount of the finances is processed by this institute. We especially want to thank Dr.-Ing. Torsten lilge for his exceptional support and work with us.

Institute for Mechatronic Systems

The luhbots team originated 2012 from the Institute of Mechatronic Systems. In cooperation with this institute we organize the events RoboChallenge and Hackathon where students have to solve similar tasks to the RoboCup@Work League and can exchange their knowledge. Additionally they support us financially and with their expertise in our regular Jour Fix meetings. Here we want to thank especially Vincent Modes as our contact person from the institute.

Institute for Materials Science

The Institute for materials Science assits us with with technical expertise in the field of materials as well as in thermal post-treatment of components in gas atmospheres. 

Roberta RegioZentrum

We work closely together with the Roberta RegioZentrum in schooling our successors. A few of our team members work as coaches for the pupils of the Roberta RegioZentrum. They not only offer pupils to be part of their student team, but also provide programming and robotics classes in other schools. Their regional school network excites more and more pupils for robotics every year.

FIT (former MZH)

The Förderzentrum für Innovation aus der Technik (FIT) (formerly known as MZH) offers college students of the Leibniz University Hannover a possibility of pursuing a StartUp idea during their studies. The luhbots are based here organizationally and we help StartUps by sharing our know-how and our workshop capacities. Both sides benefit from this. Here we want to thank especially Marc Warnecke who always supports us and manages our resources. 


The roboterfabrik was founded by the Leibniz University Hannover together with the Region Hannover and incorporated the Roberta RegioZentrum and the luhbots. The roboterfabrik is a meeting point for pupils, college students, apprentices and teachers alike. It represents the improvement of the consistent schooling in the robotics field. The transition from the i-bots into the luhbots team is facilitated by providing work spaces located in the same building.


A few of our team members stem from the i-bots and gained their curiosity in robotics by being part of this student team. Even more of our team members have worked and are working there as a coach. It is astonishing how motivated and eager to learn the i-bots team is.
