KORION was founded as a Fraunhofer spin-off in 2003 and established as a limited company in 2007 with headquarters in Ludwigsburg, Germany. Managing directors are Michael Blatz and Dr. Oliver Korn, who also works as professor for Human Computer Interaction at Offenburg University. The software company focuses on the development of simulations, games and assistive systems. Korion also offers consulting in these areas.
A special focus is gamification and serious games like the company simulation learn2work. More recently Korion started to develop entertainment games for iOS, Android and Steam. Among these are games for children (Nelly Fairy Series) as well as games for adults like a documentary game developed with the TV company arte (“Conquest of the Seven Seas”) and the strategy Sci-Fi game “Space Battle Core”.
As a Fraunhofer spin-off, Korion traditionally is actively involved in national and international research. Recent projects focused simulations, serious games and assistive systems. Korion also gained expertise in making solutions context-aware, allowing them to scale and adapt to specific target groups, including students, senior citizens and impaired persons.
