The City of Braunschweig

With its Technical University, the Deutsche Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt (German Aerospace Center), more than 20 other research institutions and a large number of innovative companies, Braunschweig forms the center of one of the most research-intensive regions in Europe. This is also reflected in its R&D expenses measured in terms of GDP where Braunschweig takes a top position in Europe, according to the EU statistics office. Furthermore, with 4% of all employees, the region has the highest “scientist density” in Europe. More than 16,000 people work in the institutions of the ForschungRegion (an association of research institutes) and an additional 20,000 work in research positions in the industry.

The promotion of knowledge and technology transfer has also given rise to a technology-oriented start-up scene and a diverse, entrepreneurial ecosystem in Braunschweig.

As a result, Braunschweig takes a top position worldwide. A creative environment, interdisciplinary cooperation and networking between science and industry are the basis for outstanding innovations – and are part of everyday life in Braunschweig.
