Heinz Nixdorf Lecture Hall

Sophisticated and clever

Neoclassicism meets smart technology.

Heinz Nixdorf (1925−1986) was one of the most innovative and successful entrepreneurs of postwar Europe. As a globally recognized pioneer of decentralized data processing and the electronic computer, he wrote more than 30 years of computer history. His Labor für Impulstechnik, founded in 1952, laid the foundation for what was to become one of the most successful companies of the 20th century—the renowned Nixdorf Computer AG in Paderborn. A world leader in the industry, it merged with Siemens AG in 1990−92.

The estate of the late Heinz Nixdorf (†1986) allowed for the creation of the Heinz Nixdorf Foundation and the Stiftung Westfalen. Both focus on promoting vocational education and training, science research and teaching, and democratic advancement.
