From outstanding innovations to traditional roots
The Technology Region Aachen is a unique mixture of high technology with universities and private research and production know-how, of internationality - from the International Charlemagne Prize of Aachen to the World Equestrian Festival CHIO Aachen - and endearing local roots with tradition, of an immensely innovative and lively corporate landscape with strong industries and networks and excellently trained specialists.
And all this in Europe's best market geography!
Good accessibility and exposed location
In addition to its central location directly in the border triangle of Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands, the location offers optimal conditions for business, with good connections to motorways, international airports, seaports, the European high-speed rail network and proximity to many major European cities.
Cross-border cooperation as normality
Thanks to its proximity to the Netherlands and Belgium, the Technology Region Aachen has developed into a cross-border agile economic area with 3.9 million inhabitants, three languages (German, French, Dutch), 250,000 companies, 300 research and competence centres and an enormous labour force potential. The so-called "Euregio Meuse-Rhine" (EMR) consists of the Aachen region on the German side and the provinces of Dutch Limburg (NL), Belgian Limburg (B), Liège (B) and East Belgium (B).
