Innovation Time


Nothing is stronger as an idea whose time has come.

Victor Hugo


Leave the team some space to develop their ideas and have the possibility and time to materialise their inspiration - that is the aim of ELFIN-Innovation-Time, in short i-TIME.

ELFIN GmbH lets his coworkers 10% of their work time to try to shape their new ideas - if they use that time themselves or in teams, in the office or outside, it is their decision.

Per Koppers - 6 Months at ELFIN

Per Koppers

Since December 2011 is Mr. Per Koppers a part of ELFIN team as a project assistant. He studied commercial management in dual system at the Europäischen Fachhochschule (EUFH) in Brühl. He chose the dual system to have some practical experience during his studies, what he finds really important.

There were several reasons that made him decide for the intensive learning program at the EUFH. On the one hand the size of the clases, no more than 28 students, facilitate a successful and personal environment. On the other hand the teachers can link the theory to the practical experience.
