AV-TEST Statistics

The Recipe for Success

Combining and Using Location Potentials

The headquarters of the AV-TEST Institute are located in Magdeburg, the capital city of the German Land of Saxony-Anhalt. An abundance of top-quality scientific institutions and organisations are located at the heart of the traditional and high-performance centre of Germany, for example the Otto-von-Guericke University of Magdeburg, the Magdeburg-Stendal University of Applied Sciences, the Fraunhofer Institute for Factory Operation and Automation IFF and the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems.

The AV-TEST Institute is able to make the most of  the close proximity to these international sources of innovation in the fields of technology and computer science and participates in an active and productive transfer of scientific knowledge. The Institute also has a separate research department in Leipzig, enabling it to also tap into the vast potential of the business location of Saxony.

Donations and Sponsoring

As a top regional company, AV-TEST is actively involved in the areas of cultural and sport promotion.

AV-TEST has been supporting another sporting discipline since 2013 as the sponsor of the roller sport teams of the sports club Polizeisportverein Magdeburg 1990 e.V

AV-TEST has been sponsoring the Kaiser-Otto-Fest (Emperor Otto Festival), an event held in memory of Emperor Otto the Great as the founder of the Archbishopric of Magdeburg and the Holy Roman Empire, since 2012.

In July 2012, AV-TEST supported the Magdeburg Art Museum which is based in the fine Romanesque building of the former Monastery of Our Lady with a donation for the restoration of the light installation on the Magdeburg lift bridge that was destroyed.

In 2010, the AV-TEST Institute helped to preserve the cultural legacy of the city of Magdeburg by participating in the “One Step, My Step” campaign run by the ‘Förderverein Dom zu Magdeburg e. V.’ in which it was able to contribute towards the renovation of the historic staircase in the north tower of Magdeburg Cathedral.

AV-TEST is impressed by the voluntary commitment of the association IGNah in Magdeburg and is delighted to support the association, which focuses on preserving and promoting historic trams in the city, as its sponsor.
