Innovation is our capital.
Whether it’s the economy, science or society itself: the secret to the success of Baden-Württemberg lies with its people. More than 11 million creative thinkers and curious minds are working hard here every day to invest in our future and they have the visionary ideas that more than demonstrate our passion for innovation. 13,600 of these ideas were registered for patent approval in 2021. An impressive figure, which has seen THE LÄND take the lead as both the most inventive state in Germany and as Europe’s most innovative location. 149 companies, global leaders in their field, have largely contributed to this success, as have the various districts in THE LÄND which are among the strongest regions economically in Europe.
