Hamburg - a Center of science


Scientific excellence and a high level of innovation activity are key factors for Hamburg in remaining competitive as a science and business location and in retaining the city’s sound economic basis. These two factors generate innovations and new enterprises, which, in turn, guarantee future success by contributing to a strong industry sector, a strong research sector, and fruitful collaboration between science and industry. To ensure Hamburg’s future as a centre of science, the Hamburg Senate has set itself the task of reviewing and enhancing framework conditions for innovation and startups on an ongoing basis.
