It is fields like mechanical engineering, the automotive industry, medical technology, textiles, biotechnology, forestry, and regenerative energy that have turned the region of Neckar-Alb into a flourishing economic area. Traditional workshop businesses, medium-sized enterprises and corporations known throughout the world are like an insurance policy for the future of the local economy. But research and development also play an important role, a job taken on in the Neckar-Alb region by the University of Tübingen and universities in Reutlingen, Albstadt-Sigmaringen and Rottenburg, as well as a variety of internationally recognized research institutes in the area. Such location factors are an ideal foundation for successful knowledge and technology transfer. With their broad spectrum of services, the Steinbeis Enterprises based in the Neckar-Alb region significantly contribute to this success.
