MicroTEC Südwest in the finals

March 11, 2008

MicroTEC Südwest has achieved a stage win by being one of 12 competitors to reach the second round of the Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung Spitzencluster competition! 

The most important criteria during the cluster selection process were the already achieved development stage, particularily, the developmental potential and dynamics as well as the creativity and innovation of the strategic approach. 

In September 2008 the finalist of the second round will be announced. The BMBF will sponsor the strategy implementation of as many as 5 clusters in the next five years and provide funds of up to 200 Mio. Euros.
