About us

Together, we are shaping the development of the region with the aim of strengthening and advancing the economic, scientific and innovation region. The focus is on the areas of mobility, energy and IT/digitalization.

Through the strategic networking of partners from business, science and the public sector, projects are initiated on a real-world laboratory scale. The Karlsruhe TechnologyRegion acts as a platform, manages the various players and contributes to co-financing. The results of the cooperation projects are positioned and made visible in the national and international environment. The TRK is active as a representative of the interests of the region and its stakeholders vis-à-vis decision-makers in the state, in the federal government, in Europe and beyond.

As one of the leading economic and innovation regions in Europe, the region combines a mix of international corporations, globally significant scientific institutions, medium-sized companies and start-ups. There is also a balanced mix of industries with a high proportion of future technologies. Business, cutting-edge research and science are combined with culture and lifestyle in a special way here. A wonderful natural landscape with many hours of sunshine gives this region a high recreational value. World-renowned research facilities and innovative companies, top-class cultural institutions and optimal transport connections make it a location where it is ideal to invest, live, work and live - true to the motto "High-tech meets lifestyle".
