Building the future

Innovation needs space and collaboration: In Saxony's capital, key technologies are developed in close cooperation between business and research. This practical approach has laid the foundation for successful technology clusters including "Robot Valley Dresden", making the city a leading international location for robotics and automation and host for the first “Dresden Robotics Festival” in September 2021 as a showcase for robotics trends.
