Most innovations originate where expertise from various disciplines comes together. Bayern Innovativ GmbH, founded in 1995 at the initiative of the Bavarian state government, capitalizes on this phenomenon and connects potential cooperation partners from different industries and technologies in order to drive innovations in small- and medium-sized enterprises (SME) in particular. Bayern Innovativ brings together experts from industry and science at all levels of the value chain and offers customised services to help them close existing gaps in technologies, supply chains and sales channels.
The networks of Bayern Innovativ GmbH presently comprise some 80,000 experts from 40,000 companies and research institutes and 80 partner network organisations. The activities centre on digitalisation, energy, health, material and mobility - five focal areas with significant future potential.
