From Erlangen into the world and with people at its core: Medical Valley European Metropolitan Region Nuremberg crosslinks and develops its unique scientific and economic expertise in healthcare into a leading international medical technology cluster.

Medical Valley has developed into an important generator for innovation in medical technology 'Made in Germany'. In the midst of an exceptionally dynamic scientific and industrial region, professional structures have been established to turn creative ideas into useful products. The key driver of this success is the tangible willingness of all stakeholders to work together in the interests of better healthcare for people. Numerous new companies have been founded in the region, that have been able to successfully establish themselves on the market - either alone or in partnership with already existing companies. In my opinion, this is an encouraging example of 'German ingenuity at its best'.
