Partners and networks

One of the main goals of the Thuringian Innovation Strategy is the regular exchange between business, science, politics and other Thuringian stakeholders. Well-networked, this creates interfaces for innovations in different sectors.
You too can network in Thuringia and find suitable partners for your projects!



One of our tasks is to initiate and expand networking and cooperation between companies and research facilities.

With the company and technology database, we offer a unique tool for obtaining information about Thuringian companies, research facilities, universities and facilities. Over 4,000 profile entries are available for interested parties to expand their contacts, look for cooperation partners or find suppliers of certain goods and services.

Cluster and network organisations

We support the Thuringian cluster and network organisations by actively involving them in the RIS process. Through cross-clustering activities such as the organisation of cross-specialisation events and collaboration in the Cross-Cluster-Initiative Thuringia (CCIT), we network the actors with each other, strengthen cooperation and manage the implementation process of RIS Thuringia in the process. The organisation of workshops on business model development and ESCA-Labeling are central aspects of professionalisation.

Close cooperation between business and science is one of the recipes for success in Thuringia's economic development. More and more companies, associations and research facilities are forming networks with other relevant players to jointly drive the development of their industry.


The Thuringian research landscape thrives on close cooperation between the various players from science and industry. The high scientific level is based on excellent scientific and research facilities. They include the state's nine universities, non-university facilities of renowned German science communities such as the Max Planck Society, the Fraunhofer Society, the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Science Association and the Helmholtz Society, as well as state research facilities. Business-related research institutes and development service providers complement the spectrum of research facilities in the field of application-oriented research and development. They are specifically geared to the requirements of small and medium-sized enterprises in Thuringia.
