Clever alternatives for networkers


Ulm metropolitan area

Clever alternatives for networkers: There are three clusters in the Ulm innovation region: the BioRegion Ulm with the BioPharMaXX initiative, the Cluster Commercial Vehicles Swabia and the logistics cluster Swabia.

“Clusters” are generally understood as collections of different companies in an industry in a region. The entire value chain is covered.

BioPharma Cluster South Germany

The BioPharma Cluster Southern Germany is one of the most important European production sites for biopharmaceutical active ingredients approved throughout Europe.

The region between Ulm and Lake Constance is one of the locations with the highest-turnover and most important research, development and production in the pharmaceutical industry in Germany.

The cluster develops therapeutic or diagnostic procedures on site and conducts research in the field of personalized medicine.
In this way, he makes a unique contribution to the medicine of the future.

An excellent life science profile makes the BioPharma Cluster South Germany a top location for biopharmaceutical development and production.

Outstanding research institutions, diverse cooperation projects – the BioPharma Cluster offers optimal conditions for groundbreaking basic research.

BioPharma Cluster South Germany

Global corporations, medium-sized companies and universities offer excellent prospects for skilled workers and trainees in the BioPharma Cluster South Germany. More than 100 companies are part of the cluster. Cooperations between science and business successfully translate pioneering research into application.

Swabia Commercial Vehicles Cluster (CNS)

The Ulm innovation region is Germany’s number one commercial vehicle location. The highest concentration of commercial vehicle manufacturers is found here nationwide. In 2007, this led to the foundation of the “Cluster Commercial Vehicles Swabia” initiative.

Numerous member companies cover the entire value chain in commercial vehicle construction. The goals are the networking of member companies and the exchange with science and research institutions. By working together on future-oriented projects, permanent competitive advantages are to be achieved for those involved, but also for the region as a whole.

This will be intensified in five working groups:

  • drive technology
  • Electronics / IT in commercial vehicles
  • adhesive technology
  • production technology
  • lightweight

Securing the next generation of engineers and arousing young people’s enthusiasm for technology are further central goals of the Commercial Vehicles Swabia cluster.

Logistics Cluster Swabia (LCS)

Logistics serves all companies: it fulfills a central cross-sectional task for the entire economy. Almost all companies from the areas of production, distribution and trade are directly dependent on efficient logistics. This applies in particular to a region with an above-average industrial population such as Swabia. Studies by Fraunhofer Supply Chain Services (SCS) repeatedly show that Swabia is one of the “top logistics locations” in Germany.

The logistics cluster would like to show this and explain logistics to interested parties. The cluster also networks the companies that do logistics – transporters, freight forwarders, industry, trade and services – and offers a platform for exchange.

The aim of the Logistics Cluster Swabia is to give the logistics location Swabia – in addition to its proven high potential – a clear profile together with universities, municipalities, business development agencies and other partners and to make it clearer to the public and politicians regionally, nationally and internationally.
