Saxony – Region of Innovation

Innovation is a Saxon tradition.
Numerous inventions from Saxony show that innovations are part of the cultural heritage of the Free Sate of Saxony.

In comparative international studies the Free State of Saxony obtained top rankings in this context. For example, in 2009 Saxony took the 15th place in the European innovation index.

The combination of exceptional inventiveness, a network of research institutions with a density far above average, the high qualification and the productivity of labour force, and family-friendly policies turned Saxony into an excellent location for innovations and investments.
