Digital Health Hub powered by Medical Valley & ZOLLHOF
The Digital Hub Initiative
The Digital Hub Initiative, developed by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy, seeks to support the establishment of digital hubs in Germany. The underlying idea of establishing hubs is that cooperation between companies and business start-ups within a confined area (like in the Silicon Valley) will boost innovation, especially in the digital age.
Cooperation and networking in a common space is the breeding ground for new innovative products and business models. In this way, a regional “hub ecosystem” can be created where new ideas emerge and digital transformation is taken forward. Therefor necessary are hubs with international appeal / reach, in which German and international business start-ups, scientists, investors and established companies mutually support and strengthen each other.
In April / May 2017, 12 hubs were chosen in Germany. Medical Valley in Erlangen and ZOLLHOF – Tech Incubator in Nuremberg together were able to assert themselves as Digital Health Hub Nuremberg / Erlangen.
