The Free State of Bavaria has a differentiated network of internationally-renowned universities, non-university research institutions, company facilities and associations, which has evolved over time.

Bavaria's university landscape is an efficient and varied pillar of research and development and provides stimulus for innovation. Nine state universities (including the elite LMU Munich and Technische Universität München), 24 universities of applied sciences, the University of Television and Film Munich and large numbers of private institutes educate the next generation and open up interesting opportunities for cooperation for innovative companies from every sector.

Renowned research and scientific institutions such as the Max Planck Society, the German Aerospace Center, the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft and Institutes, as well as the Helmholtz and Leibniz Associations, are driving forces in their sectors worldwide and attract scientists from a wide range of different fields of interest.

Bavarian technology clusters ensure fast transfer of knowledge and give businesspeople the chance to make research available so that everyone can benefit. That pays off. For Bavaria. And for all the companies based here.
