Quality of live & innovative strength
The high quality of live and the tasty specialty goods from the Nuremberg Metropolitan Region are well known. But we are also excellent in economics, technologies and scientific, especially in the healthcare sector. The consolidated diversity of manufacturers, research and educational institutions, clinics and medical technology service providers – unique in Germany – makes the Nuremberg Metropolitan Region a veritable "Medical Valley".42% of all initial patent applications in Germany within the field diagnostic, surgery, identification are from the Metropolitan Region. Yet apart from the medical technology we develop solutions for smart mobility, connected production and sustainable energy systems.
We show together with the Nuremberg Chamber of Commerce and Industry the economic, technological and scientific strength of the metropolitan region. These are highlighted in the Leitbild WaBe (model of sustainable growth and employment).
