Leading-edge technology from Dortmund

Elmos, a leading manufacturer of automotive mixed-signal semiconductors, is one of the pioneers and a figurehead for the profound structural change in Dortmund and the entire Ruhr region. Thanks to its targeted focus on future-oriented industries such as microelectronics, nanotechnologies or IT, Dortmund is a rapidly growing technology and start-up center. It has established itself as an important science location on a national and international level. A dynamic eco-system of companies, universities, colleges and research institutes is driving forward-looking innovations through joint cooperations.

In this context, the Wirtschaftsförderung Dortmund (Economic Development Agency) presents the new image film “Spitzentechnologie aus Dortmund” (Leading-edge technology from Dortmund, in German only).
