Regional information

The region Bremen-Oldenburg in North-West Germany is a designated European Metropolitan Region. The title is a recognition of the region’s economic importance and key role in international trade. Strong business clusters and networks are established and growing in the following key sectors: aeronautics, automotive, culture, energy, environmental protection and climate change, food and agriculture, health, logistics and shipping, science and tourism.

The Metropole Nordwest is a key region for energy production in Germany – for both renewables and fossil fuels. Our excellent infrastructure and strategic location make the region an ideal location for the import, storage and delivery of oil and gas. Renewable energy is the energy of the future, and this rapidly growing sector is already an important employer in the Metropole Businesses of the future Nordwest.

The region is not just an important producer of on- and offshore wind power, but is also leading the way in electric mobility, biogas and solar energy technology. Companies based in the Metropole Nordwest are active in every aspect of renewables: from research and development through training and qualification to plant construction.

Partner information

With the decision to take its name from Carl von Ossietzky the University of Oldenburg emphasized science’s responsibility towards society and itsneed to engage in public discourse. This tradition remains vital to theuniversity’s identity to this day.

The University of Oldenburg is a young university. Since its founding in 1973 the university has enriched the Northwest region of Germany with economic and cultural impulses. Strengthening the region as a centre of science and research is also the declared objective of its close co-operation with the University of Bremen.

ForWind is the joint Center for Wind Energy Research of the Universities of Oldenburg, Hannover and Bremen, and the biggest research cluster in wind energy on university level in Germany. ForWind bundles wind energy research activities from the three universities within all relevant areas of physics and engineering. ForWind conducts fundamental research, provides independent scientific cooperation within industry-oriented projects, and organizes academic education and continuing studies. More: www.forwind.de
