Cluster region

With the four regions and linchpins Karlsruhe, Stuttgart, Villingen-Schwenningen and Freiburg the cluster is located in one of the European high-performance areas of science and industry. It is situated in a region where three countries meet: Germany, Switzerland and France.

Competence accumulation within the cluster

  • About 30 % of the MEMS companies and users in germany are located in the cluster. For example global players and many high innovative medium sized companies, which are often World market leader in their fields ("hidden champions")
  • In result of players with srong market positions, the cluster constitutes a central economy sector. This sector generates a high number of Jobs in the MEMS industry and the application market.

The Cluster contains europes biggest accumulation of eeite researchers in the MEMS industry with over 40 university chairs and more than 1.200 scientific workers.
