About the institute

The Matjes Institute for Gallop Simulation (MIG) based in Hamburg is a private institution for the research of race physics and development of algorithms for use in horse racing simulators. Among other things, the research department deals with the analysis of third-party algorithms with the goal of algorithm optimization. The institute was founded on 18th December 2017 by Marco Matjes.

From the MIG, the spin-off GALOPPSIM.RACING emerged, which produces the GaloppSim Excel horse racing simulator and uses the findings of the institute’s research activities for practical application.
