and university city
The city of Augsburg was founded by the Romans over 2,000 years ago. The third largest city in Bavaria has a population of almost 300,000. Thanks to the two business dynasties Fugger and Welser, the city became known across Europe as a trading and financial centre from medieval times. A few centuries later, the city saw the development of the first Diesel engine by Rudolf Diesel himself, the development of the first chiller machines by Linde and the commencement of the serial production of jet aircraft by Messerschmitt.
This level of technical innovation meanwhile continues at Augsburg Innovation Park, the location of the office building Weitblick.
Augsburg innovation park
Augsburg Innovation Park is one of the largest of its kind in Europe and benefits from optimal infrastructural connections. The contemporary campus-style site is where science and research meet industry and manufacturing. Siemens, Infineon, Fujitsu and other high-profile companies have long since discovered the qualities of the location.
The distances are short between the university, research institutes and long-established institutions such as the Fraunhofer, the Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt and the Institut für Materials Resource Management.
The park focusses on technology in the mechatronics and automation, environmental technology, ICT, Industry 4.0, fibre composite technology and lightweight construction sectors.
