Location: Stuttgart

Stuttgart is the capital of the German federal state Baden-Württemberg and the main city in Swabia. As a local center, Stuttgart is located in a metropolitan area with more than 2.5 million people living in or close to the city. Located in the south of Germany it is close to Karlsruhe, Mannheim, Heidelberg, and Ulm.

Locally it is also known for its nice geographical location being squeezed in the river Neckar’s valley with beautiful outlooks and a reasonable local wine industry. However, this extreme geographical location has also exposed Stuttgart to a rather large set of challenges, ecologically as well as economically. Stuttgart is regularly subject of bad air conditions and free ground to build new houses or industrial plants is non-existing. Hence, Stuttgart is in a leading position among Germany’s larger cities which is subject to a fast change to clean and renewable energy production and consumption. The changes range from a fast growing fleet of electric cars to clean heating and novel high-speed train connections. The changes are visible everywhere in the city with the prominent new train station construction site and its related tunnels (“Stuttgart 21”). It hosts regular events and fairs which can be reached via the local airport offering mainly European connections and a few international flights.

Stuttgart is known around the globe for being the birthplace of the car manufacturing industry – with Mercedes Benz and Porsche having their headquarters in the city. But the city also has a rich set of companies in all kinds of engineering-related products, for example, Bosch and Trumpf. All these companies have large IT departments these days which address the challenges of ubiquitous computing. In addition, the metropolitan area of Stuttgart and its neighboring cities also has a vibrant core IT industry, e.g., with an IBM research centre located in Böblingen.
