Knowledge and technologies form a solid foundation for economic value creation, growth and prosperity. This is especially true for regions that lack a lot of natural resources such as Hessen. Numerous technology-oriented companies locate their headquarters in Hessen. Across various sectors, they research, develop and sell innovative products and services.
We provide an excellent environment to obtain and strengthen national and international competitiveness. There are lively exchanges between industry sectors, companies, universities and government in Hessen, whether it is initiated by the Hessen's Ministry of Economics or by the various clusters and networks of the state. Thus, we provide an infrastructure fit for the future which supplies a powerful economy with an ideal cultural medium.
Hessen-IT, Hessen-Biotech, Hessen-Nanotech and Hessen-Umwelttech
Information technology, life sciences, nanotech and material technologies, energy and environmental technologies: these are the key and future technologies for development of innovative products and services. Our team focused on four state initiatives will inform and advise you on these topics as contracted by the Hessen Ministry of Economics, Transport, Urban and Regional Development (HMWVL - Hessisches Ministerium für Wirtschaft, Verkehr und Landesentwicklung).
We promote technology transfer and present Hessen as a technology site to the public. In relation to this, we implement a comprehensive offer of activities based on current trends and requirements of technologically oriented sectors. This includes the regularly appearing NEWS, up-to-date Internet presentations, conception of topic-related events, as well as planning, organization and implementation of cooperative booths at leading trade fairs in target sectors. Thus, we provide organized networking opportunities for all participants in future technologies and application branches with the state initiatives and provide information on state support. The project management of the state initiatives is handled by the Hessen Trade & Invest GmbH.

As Hessen universities, research establishments and companies cooperate together for R&D projects, this strengthens the project participants as well as the site for the technology and innovation, namely Hessen. Therefore the Technology Transfer Network of Hessen promotes the transfer of knowledge and technology and provides for transparency in the broad Hessen research landscape through the search engine „Forschungsfinder Hessen“ (Research Finder Hessen). In the various event formats, we bring scientists and companies together, bundle expertise, network participants and provide Hessen companies current research results. Thus, the joint stands of Hessen universities serve as exhibitions of applied research in Hessen at the most important trade shows - CeBIT, Hannover Exhibition and Achema.
Our contacts in the offices of TTN at the Hessen Trade & Invest GmbH as well as the regional consultants of the consortium of Hessen Chamber of Industry & Commerce and the transfer sites of Hessen universities, the Trade Chambers and the Hessen trade associations ensure that the path from the idea to the product is as short as possible between scientific research and entrepreneurial practice.
