Core Competencies

Everyone wants to be in a place where the grass is greener – that is where growth happens. That is also the reason why we focus on strengthening our strengths. The renowned Research Institute Prognos has identified five major core competencies, in which the regiopolitan area Mainfranken shows excellent expertise and industrial power:
Mechanical Engineering & Automotive, Medicine & Health, Sustainability/Energy and the Environment, IT & AI and New Materials & Plastics. 
Nearly a third of total number of employees in the area works in one of these fields.   There is great potential here. Interconnecting these competencies and using digitalization to stimulate cross-industry innovation secures future growth in the region.   
Two universities, Julius Maximilians-Universität and Hochschule Würzburg-Schweinfurt, provide a pool of young talents, bursting with creativity and innovative spirit.
