SAXONY! - Where Innovative Power meets Founding Spirit

There are many good reasons why the region in the heart of Europe is a top location for globally active companies as Volkswagen, BMW, Porsche, GLOBALFOUNDRIES, Infineon, BOSCH and many more… 

Saxony is:

  • Home to six automotive production sites operated by Volkswagen, BMW, Porsche, Daimler, and is evolving into Europe’s largest production venue for all-electric vehicles
  • Europe’s largest microelectronics cluster and the 5th largest worldwide
  • The "birthplace" of every 8th car built in Germany and every 3rd chip manufactured in Europe  
  • Home to an extraordinarily highly skilled workforce (high above OECD average)
  • The venue with one of the highest density of R&D institutions in Germany
  • A European "Strong Innovator Region" according to the "EU Regional Innovation Scoreboard"
  • The region with the best environment for technology funding in Germany
  • An ideal location for innovative start-ups and spin-offs

Research and innovation in Saxony are geared towards the rapid commercialization of cutting-edge technologies. This is particularly the case in the hightech sectors comprising microelectronics/ICT, mobility, engineering, medtech and clean energy technologies. Due to the close cooperation of high tech enterprises with a large number of universities and research institutions, Saxony provides ideal starting conditions for business founders. Furthermore, no other German federal state supports researchers who want to become young entrepreneurs with so much commitment as Saxony does. This was ascertained by the Stifterverband, a donors' association for the promotion of sciences and humanities in Germany,
