Team Heidelberg - Members
There are many universities - and there is Heidelberg ...
Bioquant - a short name for a large network
DKFZ - how to win the Nobel Prize in 25 years
BioRegio Rhein-Neckar - connecting science and industry
The Rhein-Neckar area - which reaches from Mannheim to Heidelberg (west-east) and from Darmstadt to Karlsruhe (north-south) has witnessed an enormous increase in biotechnological activities over the last decade. This development has been acknowledged several times by the German Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF, read Newspaper Articles in German), which lead to the name of the BioRegio Rhein-Neckar . On the academic side the Technical Universities of Karlsruhe and Darmstadt, the Business schools at University of Mannheim, and the life science based University of Heidelberg form a geographical rhombus that delivers all competences for sustainable growth. Industrial heavy-weights in chemistry (BASF AG in Mannheim), pharmacy (Merck AG in Darmstadt), and software development (SAP AG in Walldorf) strengthen the region in its challenging ambitions. The creation of the technology park in Heidelberg allows start-up companies in biotechnology to tightly cooperate with the neighboring university, the DKFZ and the European Laboratory of Molecular Biology (EMBL). In the left image you can see the ZMBH and the Bioquant building on the main campus and the technology park in the background.
