As Martin Gerster, member of the Bundestag and SPD budget expert, reported to the city of Karlsruhe, the Bundestag's budget committee has set the appropriate course and approved the first 278 million euros of the project, which is set to cost 500 million euros by 2024.

"This is a terrific success for the city and the TechnologieRegion Karlsruhe with its science and research institutions," said Lord Mayor Dr. Frank Mentrup, pleased with the successful application for one of the sought-after locations in the centre's network.

"In his letter, Federal Transport Minister Andres Scheuer expressly confirmed the excellent quality of the research cluster in Karlsruhe and emphasised that user, trial and test fields will be created in the decentralised locations. This is a huge opportunity for Karlsruhe and the entire region".
And this is also a great opportunity for the entire international network of Karlsruhe to get involved accordingly.

Further information: The funds are to flow from the 2022 budget year onwards.

Anlaufstelle in Pune

 

Die Kooperation zwischen Karlsruhe und dem indischen Pune ist einen Schritt weiter: Im Januar 2014 wurde im "MCCIA Trade Tower", 403, Senapati Bapat Road, eine direkte Karlsruher Anlaufstelle mit den Repräsentantinnen Iris Becker und Winnie Kulkarni von "Let's Bridge IT" in Pune eröffnet.

Durch Erfolg und Ausbau der vielfältigen Aktivitäten - ob Infos rund um den Standort Karlsruhe, aktiv Kontakte zu indischen Firmen halten oder deutsche Firmen aus der TRK in und um Pune bekannter machen - erfolgte im März 2018 ein Umzug in neue Räumlichkeiten, auch durch die Erweiterung um die Repräsentanz des Landes Baden-Württembergs in Maharashtra sowie das Marketingbüro der „Hochschul Föderation Südwest“.
