Why are the universities here so attractive?
No other federal state has such a high density and variety of institutions of higher education as Baden-Württemberg. Here, there are more than 70 state, ecclesiastical and private institutions of higher education, including 23 colleges and universities of applied science. There are also around one hundred non-university research institutes.
On top of this, the quality of our educational facilities and universities have incomparable capacity for innovation, especially in the area of research. Proximity to the flourishing regional industry is another advantage.
