Rhine-Neckar Metropolitan Region
A strong region. The Rhine-Neckar Metropolitan Region is one of Germany’s leading economic regions and home to a host of internationally renowned corporations such as BASF, Heidelberg Cement, SAP and Südzucker, as well as some of the world’s leading medium-sized enterprises.
Shaping the future together. Companies in the Rhine-Neckar Region have a long tradition of working closely with scientific institutions, politicians and local authorities. In 2006, a unique public-private partnership was formed in which four strong partners – Verband Region Rhein-Neckar, Verein Zukunft Metropolregion Rhein-Neckar e.V., Stiftung Metropolregion Rhein-Neckar and Metropolregion Rhein-Neckar GmbH – are working together toward the goal of establishing a reputation for the region by 2025 as one of the most attractive and competitive in Europe.
