Business, know-how, health and tourism related to the horse – these are the four pillars on which the Horse Competence Center Germany (HCCG) is based. In keeping with the slogan “horse competence in practice and research” scientific consulting, events and project management relating to these topics are offered.
The aim is to stimulate the demand for services and products in the field of equestrian science, to optimize the transfer of knowledge from science to business and to network the appropriate players in the region with each other. In this way this holistic, central contact point is created, in the heart of a region which is impassioned about horses!
The HCCG is based at the former Osthoff Manor in Georgsmarienhütte, near Osnabrück. The beautifully situated manor offers outstanding facilities - modern stables, training arenas and vast pastures for the horses as well as multifunctional lecture and conference rooms plus apartments for human beings who are keen to learn. In this way a unique infrastructure has been created for equestrian research and events.
Four competent partners set up the HCCG in July 2012. The legal entity of the HCCG is the Science of Business GmbH of Hochschule Osnabrück, which was founded in 2002 and in which successful competence centers in the fields of logistics and energy are already integrated.
The great advantage for customers from home and abroad is the fact that the HCCG, as an unbiased institution which is not linked to associations, offers an all-round service.
