Software for social purposes
As part of our corporate responsibility, we make our software expertise available for social purposes. Hence, we support the international NGO "German Doctors" by providing them a deployment planning software. German Doctors sends volunteering doctors to work for projects in the Philippines, India, Bangladesh, Kenya and Sierra Leone.
We are helping this humanitarian aid to optimize mission planning and to put together the best teams of doctors. For this, we developed a planning software and take care of software maintenance during ongoing operation. To enable the doctors abroad quick and easy access to crucial medical knowledge and country-specific particularities, we also developed a solution for the online administration of symptoms which is to be used in future training courses and on-site missions.
Promotion of high-school talents
Another focus of our corporate social responsibility is the promotion of talented high-school students interested in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. For instance, we are co-sponsoring "Jugend forscht", a German youth science competition aiming at getting young people enthusiastic about mathematical and scientific subjects. Our Lüneburg headquarters organizes and sponsors the regional youth science competition every year.
In addition, we provide advice and support to regional schools. We also assist the startup@school project of the regional Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK Lüneburg-Wolfsburg).
Moreover, we invite interested young people to visit Werum on the occasion of the annual "take your child to work" day (Zukunftstag).
