The Hanseatic city is hosting a joint stand at the Hanover Fair from April 23-27, 2018 with scientific institutes and technology transfer facilities among the main exhibitors. Katharina Fegebank, Deputy Mayor of Hamburg, who is due to attend the fair, noted: “A location’s future lies in research and innovation as well as in good collaboration between science and commerce. We have achieved plenty in Hamburg in recent years.”
The spotlights in Hall 2, which is dedicated to Research & Technology (Stand A 26) under the theme “Future Hamburg”, will be on the Deutsche Elektronen- Synchrotron (DESY), European XFEL GmbH, the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME ScreeningPort, the Fraunhofer – Center for Maritime Logistics and Services (CML), the Fraunhofer Institute for Additive Production Technology (IAPT), Hamburg Innovation GmbH, Hamburg Invest, the University of Applied Sciences in Hamburg (HAW), Orokoko GmbH, the Technical University Hamburg-Harburg (TUHH) and the ZAL Center of Applied Aeronautical Research GmbH.
Frank Horch, Senator for Economics, remarked: “Innovations and technology transfer guarantee a location’s viability in future. We have excellent infrastructure in Hamburg with key, international players in science and commerce. We offer scientists, founders, fledgling and established companies the best conditions for exchange, networking and transfer.”
Hamburg Invest is organising Hamburg’s joint stand at the fair. Dr. Rolf Strittmatter, Managing Director of Hamburg Invest, noted: “Hamburg has added points of emphases in recent years and stands more for knowledge-based added value which we will demonstrate in Hanover.” Chevron, Jungheinrich, Still and TÜV Nord are just some of many other Hamburg-based exhibitors taking part in the fair.
