Entrepreneurial spirit in Heilbronn

Heilbronn is the region of hidden champions. Market leaders and leaders in technology worth billions are domiciled here. Six universities packed in closely together are the basis for innovation. The cooperation between the Heilbronn Education Campus and the Technical University of Munich will yield even more young academics. School pupils are introduced to technological topics through the futuristic “experimenta”. The Heilbronn model, with its focus on training and research, is unique in Germany. The people here like getting involved – but they know how to party too.
