"Driven by the concern for climate protection, mobility solutions are currently undergoing a significant change. In this context, ideas from Baden-Württemberg have always been a driving force", explains Franz Loogen, President of the State Agency e-mobil BW. "As an innovation agency, we bring together numerous and diverse players from industry, research and politics in our networks, realise cross-sector innovation projects and coordinate our state's central funding activities", adds Loogen.
South-West Germany's think tank
After a two-year break due to the Covid pandemic, Baden-Württemberg International (BW_i), the Stuttgart Region Economic Development Corporation (WRS) and the State Agency e-mobil BW will once again set the stage for small and large think tanks from the South-West at Hanover's Baden-Württemberg pavilion. Most of the exhibiting organisations play an active role as partners or members of the extensive network of the State Agency e-mobil BW.
The exhibitors from THE LÄND will be presenting smart technologies for zero-emission and connected mobility – from hydrogen as energy source to powertrain and electric motor engineering to software solutions and information and communications technologies (ICT). In addition to companies and research institutes, small and medium-sized enterprises as well as utility companies and grid operators will be exhibiting their innovative solutions.
The Rhine-Neckar metropolitan region and e-mobil BW will present their H2Rhein-Neckar and H2Rivers projects to demonstrate how zero emissions can be achieved in public transport with fuel-cell-powered busses. As a further attraction, the M.Tech Accelerator funding program of the Stuttgart Region Economic Development Corporation (WRS) will give one Baden-Württemberg-based start-up per trade-fair day the opportunity to present themselves to an international audience. Companies from Finland are also invited to present their innovative mobility solutions. With the special exhibition area “Baden-Württemberg meets Finland”, e-mobil BW and the business development organisation Business Oulu underline their long-term partnership, connecting players from Finland, Baden-Württemberg and other parts of Germany as well.
