Innovation in Cooperation

Innovation Alliance of the Karlsruhe TechnologyRegion and the Bühl Economic Development Department

In our globalised and digitalised economic world, companies are under the pressure to constantly check their own products, processes and business models for market success and to develop them further if necessary.

Innovations are no longer luxuries but necessary for lasting economic success. Especially SMEs face the challenge that their own expertise, the existing infrastructure, and the financial and human resources are limited.

This is where the event “Innovation in Cooperation” organised by the Innovation Alliance, the TechnologieRegion Karlsruhe GmbH and the Bühl Economic Development Department starts. In a compact format, the Innovation Alliance helps with four essential questions of each innovation project.

  • How do you identify the development potential of products, processes and business models?
  • Where do you find suitable innovation partners quickly, freely and confidentially?
  • Which subsidies can you receive?
  • How do you get suitable experts on board together with the Welcome Center of the Karlsruhe TechnologyRegion?
