HyExperts II: H2Ostwürttemberg

About the region

The region of Ostwürttemberg is formed by the district of Ostalb and the district of Heidenheim. The 447,000 inhabitants are scattered among 53 cities and municipalities. Ostwürttemberg is the economic region that is home to Germany’s oldest industrial enterprise. The region has continuously developed and reinvented itself time and again. This is why an economic region with a focus on manufacturing and logistics has emerged here, which excels in creativity, innovation and performance. Today, the region is a patent stronghold and regularly proves that it is rightly considered the region for “talents and patents”. With the transformation of mobility towards emission-free and more sustainable forms of propulsion, companies and people have to face the changes taking place in traditional industries. The H2Ostwürttemberg project seeks to play an active role in shaping this change.
