Rail project is to “technology axis” – Augsburger Allgemeine

report demonstrates the economic and innovation along the train route from Ulm to Budapest

In the German section of the trans-European railway axis Paris- Vienna-Budapest bundled Economic and innovation to an extent than in any other European region. This is the central message of forecasters study on the economic importance of this space that has been previously perceived primarily as a transport corridor “Magistrale for Europe”. The report was on the weekend at an event of Industry and Commerce (IHK) Ulm and Swabia in the conference “Mobility” at the International Danube Festival in Ulm on the new coordinator of the EU Commission for the trans-European corridor “Rhine-Danube”, Karla Peijs, presents

The concept of “technology-axis” for the space between Karlsruhe, Stuttgart, Ulm, Augsburg, Munich had been previously used rather imprecise.; now he was going and supported by this study impressively in startling clarity with data, said the Vice-President of the IHK Schwaben, Gerd Finkbeiner, who is also deputy chairman of the “Magistrale for Europe” initiative, at the presentation. The “technology-axis” could be a new “trademark” of this space.





“An axis at which economic strength brings to this extent, needed as the backbone of a modern and efficient infrastructure,” said the chief executive of the IHK Ulm, Otto Sälzle, at the presentation of the study. “Because a lot is under way, but it’s also still a lot to do.”

Finkbeiner underlined this for the Bavarian section of the highway. The high-speed train route should not be in a few years, on the border between Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria with the rail project Stuttgart-Ulm – on the bridge over the Danube between Ulm and Neu-Ulm – end. This must be enshrined in the new Federal Transport Infrastructure Plan 2015. Along the “technology-axis south” is, according to forecasters-seventh report of the German gross value added generated (14.8 percent). This is higher than the population in this area (11.9 percent). Even in the southern German comparison (Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria) are the trade tax revenue by one-fifth, and the research and development costs for the economy by just under half higher than it would be expected the number of inhabitants. Almost a quarter of people who move within Germany or immigrate to Germany, do so in the cities and counties along the “technology-axis”, their dynamics, appeal and attraction for workers underscores.

The patent intensity is twice as high as the national average

each almost a third of all national patent applications (31.4 percent) and research and development expenses (R & D) industry (31.6 percent) account for 41 cities and counties along this axis. The patent intensity (index for Germany = 100, Examination Room = 240) and the proportion of R & D employees in the economy (210) in the study area compared to the national average more than twice as high.
