The InnovationRegion – trailblazing for the whole of Europe!

Innovations created in the Karlsruhe region have an excellent reputation the world over. Many ideas piloted here go on to become blueprints for products and services across the whole of Europe and beyond. Our high-calibre networks and technology transfer centres and the NEO Innovation Award help transform ideas born here into marketable and financially successful products and services.


Representatives of the business, academic and public sectors meet in cross-disciplinary networks to drive forward research and development.
