Hessen: the technology state

Technologieland Hessen


Hessen is a high-tech state that will only be able to secure its prosperity by providing technology-oriented companies with optimal conditions. Ideas developed in Hessen should be translated into products that are also manufactured in Hessen at competitive prices.

Hessen Trade and Invest (HTAI) provides forward-thinking businesses throughout Hessen with networking opportunities, consultancy services and information as part of the “Technologieland Hessen” initiative. We’ve been commissioned by the Ministry of Economics, Energy, Transport and Regional Development to provide comprehensive, neutral and free support for the development, application and marketing of all kinds of key technologies.

We provide important impetus, share contacts and open up access to relevant networks to generate innovation. We latch on to trends and offer information about new technologies and state funding initiatives. We work closely, cooperatively and pragmatically with our partners from economic, scientific, social and political circles. Our constant interaction with companies and funding institutions allows us to meet the demands of specific target groups and provide support services to national and international companies, making us a platform and disseminator for innovation in Hessen.

Hessen’s technological prowess can be noted in eight areas, including life sciences and bio-economics. Companies in this field can profit from Hessen’s status as a modern location for life sciences with its strong pharmaceutical, chemical and medical sector. In the field of resource efficiency and environmental technology, HTAI is helping to exploit the huge potential of this forward-thinking sector and promoting the transition to a sustainable economy. Our team is specialized in the field of production technology, offering advice on things like Industry 4.0 and additive manufacturing. Our innovation support team will be happy to answer any general or cross-thematic questions you may have on the funding available for technology and innovation, or on events and matchmaking.

We join companies on their journey into the technological future of our state. Please visit our website (www.technologieland-hessen.de/start) for more information on specific topics and the wide range of opportunities available in the technology state of Hessen.
