The Rhine-Neckar region runs along the tri-state border between Baden-Württemberg, Rhineland-Palatinate and Hessia, and is one of the most important economic regions in Germany. It is marked by its healthy blend of future-ready industry, with a distinct leaning towards the automotive industry, biotechnology, the life sciences, chemicals, the energy and environmental industry, IT, the arts and creative industry, mechanical engineering and machinemaking, and organic electronics. The leading international companies, medium-sized enterprises and innovative startups in the region reap the advantages of an outstanding higher education and research infrastructure. The close interplay between industry and science provides an excellent foundation for successful knowledge and technology sharing, derived from the support provided by the many Steinbeis Enterprises in the region.
There are 53 Steinbeis Enterprises (SEs) in the Rhine-Neckar region (which lies along the Rhine and Neckar rivers): four at the German Cancer Research Center in Heidelberg, two on the Mannheim Campus of the Stuttgart-based Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University (DHBW), six at the Mosbach Campus of the DHBW, three at the Ludwigshafen University of Applied Sciences, three at the Mannheim University of Applied Sciences and ten at the University of Heidelberg – not to mention 25 other centers in other locations.
