    A location for the alert. The right location for you.

    The Technology Region Aachen offers a unique combination of high technology – with university and private research – and production know-how. Its international flair is immense – from the International Charlemagne Prize to the World Equestrian Festival – and yet it still has endearingly strong local roots and traditions. It is a lively corporate landscape with one of the best market geographies in Europe. AGIT promotes and develops this Technology Region and is the partner for international, national and regional enterprises when it comes to finding the ideal location.


    The economy needs technology and technology needs the economy.

    As simple as it may sound, this correlation plays a decisive role in the growth of an entire region. Here in Aachen we are the partner for business enterprises opening doors for them and making the Technology Region Aachen more transparent. Whether it’s about setting up a company here, finding innovation partners or the targeted promotion of economically sound projects, AGIT is the Development Agency for the Aachen Region and your partner for business.


    Starting up with technology. The innovative power of new business enterprises.

    A Technology Region does not just appear out of thin air. Nor can it hold its own without using the power of new technological ideas, the latest findings from the field of science and research or new processes as the basis for establishing new companies. And exactly that is what is so special about the Aachen Region. Here – with our help – science can become business. AGIT specialises in providing support for technology-oriented start-up companies.

Technology Transfer

Nowadays the term "Technology Transfer" is primarily associated with the transfer of innovative, technological knowledge from public research institutions to the business world. For small and medium-sized enterprises this process means the chance to participate in this technological know-how, so that they can be well positioned for the future. After all, the scientific know-how should be where it can be economically implemented: in the business enterprises!

Efficient cooperation between business and science is therefore a decisive factor in the competition among business locations and regions. As the agency for innovation and technology transfer AGIT mbH promotes this in the Aachen Region with various projects:
