In today's globalized, technology-focused working environment, knowledge is a crucial location factor. The corporate community needs creative, highly qualified people if it is to consistently deliver new and innovative products and services. The Munich Metropolitan Region's 29 universities are instrumental in preparing the well-educated labor pool that this requires.
Above and beyond their mandate to provide first-rate education, the region's universities also collaborate closely with 16 research institutes to drive a steady stream of innovations. It is no coincidence that Bavaria files more patent applications than any other state in Germany. Organizations in the Munich Metropolitan Region play a large and vital part in sustaining this leading performance.
