HyStarter II: State Capital Munich

About the region

The state capital of Munich is one of the most sought-after locations for business and innovation in Europe. The city on the Isar River is characterised by renowned global players, especially in the industrial and high-tech sectors, an innovative SME sector and a creative, broad-based start-up scene. In addition, there are a large number of research institutions, colleges and universities. Together, these create an environment in which new products and services have repeatedly been successfully developed over many years. Innovation, research and science are the essential framework conditions for Munich’s competitiveness and success as a digital location of the future.

In this context, it is important to analyse new and sustainable technologies such as hydrogen and fuel cells and their potential for the state capital of Munich, and to develop a viable concept.
