Bayern Innovativ GmbH Bayern Innovativ is one of the major centers for innovation and cooperation in Europe. The Nuremberg-based organisation was founded in 1995 by the Free State of Bavaria in cooperation with industry and science with the purpose of promoting innovation and knowledge transfer. New developments are initiated by supporting the interdisciplinary collaboration between companies as well as transferring the latest research results from scientific institutes. Bayern Innovativ has set up internationally oriented networks in ten technologies and sectors by organising numerous topic-specific conferences, cooperation forums and joint booths on high-tech trade shows supported by a professional multimedia exchange of information and knowledge. In five branches, Bayern Innovativ manages the respective clusters, which were launched as of the so called “Cluster-Offensive” in 2006: Automotive, Energy Technology, Logistics, Medical Technology and New Materials. The aim of the cluster is to continue expanding nationwide networks to generate additional value in Bavaria. At this stage, Bayern Innovativ´s networks include 55.000 companies and 500 institutes in 50 countries.

Bavarian Initiative E-Mobility

Information and knowledge transfer online

The development of innovative ideas and their implementation requires networking beyond the core automotive industry – comprising e.g. new materials for light-weight structures and interior fittings, systems for comfort and safety, on-board electronics or drive systems.

The online database Electromobility Bavaria represents Bavarian competence in the field of e-mobility, from science to industrial implementation. The new online database offers interested companies fast and customer-oriented access to project artners and contact to other networks.

The web portal offers companies and scientific institutes a platform to present their products and technologies to a wide range of interested parties by publishing individual competence profiles. The web portal offers the opportunity to search for potential cooperation partners according technology requirements. Potential cooperation partners can be found target-oriented along technologies in this web portal.

Cooperation is a key aspect concerning the optimisation of conventional vehicles as well as new future-oriented technologies e.g. for electromobility. Developments in the field of electric mobility are supported by the Bavarian State Ministry of Economic Affairs, Infrastructure, Transport and Technology through a specific funding programme. Efficient networking along the added-value chains is essential in order to be well prepared for the ongoing challenges of global competition. Therefore, BAIKA offers you an excellent infrastructure: I Conceptual design and organisation of national and international congresses, symposia, cooperation forums and one-on-one meetings I Organisation of technology-oriented workshops (e.g. vehicle electrical system, adhesive bonding) I Possibility to showcase your innovative products and developments at international trade fairs and congresses I Contacts to networks of other technologies and branches through the wide field of activities of Bayern Innovativ GmbH I Worldwide access to companies and institutes via BAIKAOnline-Databases
