Kaiserslautern in the Year of Science 2010
“Knowledge Creates Jobs”
19.02.2010Owing to its universities and research facilities, Kaiserslautern evolved into a powerful international center of innovative technological products and services.
Specialized mediumsized companies employ highly qualified employees and fill the order books of the region’s suppliers. Due to close networking among the companies and their cooperation with universities, which, in turn, provide highly skilled junior staff, these companies achieve a high level of competitiveness.
Kaiserslautern is well on its way to master the necessary structural change. Business startups as spinoffs from research facilities enter new markets with innovative product ideas and services, thus, creating new jobs and securing the region’s future.
The extent of what has already been achieved can be seen in the series of events “Knowledge Creates Jobs”. Successful company founders and their fascinating foundation stories, which originated in the city’s universities and research facilities, are the focus of attention.
This series of events intends to encourage people of this region, especially students and young scientists, to follow the example set by these company founders because
knowledge creates jobs and jobs create prosperity!

we are looking forward to see you!
