City of Science


Trading center of the past, the second largest city in Bavaria, as well as a high-tech, industry, and service location. For hundreds of years already, Nuremberg has connected ingenuity with entrepreneurial spirit – and today with state-of-the-art technology. Thereby, FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg has been driving progress since its foundation in 1743 through excellence in research and teaching.

As #1 innovator, FAU at the same time provides optimal conditions in the set-up of innovative startups. Nuremberg as a metropolitan area has thus not only become home of numerous business incubators, but the region with the second-highest concentration of startups in Germany.
