About the supporters

Stuttgart Regional Economic Development Corporation is the central contact point for investors and companies in the city of Stuttgart with its five surrounding counties being one of the most active automotive regions worldwide including plenty of hidden champions and world-leading technology companies doing research, development and production. This industry branch is going through a mayor transformation towards an electrified power train and more digitised solutions in production and product and at the same time is faced with a lack of an experienced workforce and the need to re- and upskill the existing.

Supporting this transformation and involving the most relevant regional actors is the main purpose of a just starting project that will be presented and promoted during SCAP2022.
