A lively and attractive research and educational landscape is developing in Magdeburg. This is a basic requirement for bringing more creative people here and creating a bond between our own young talent and the city. Academics and scientists from all over the world are already working in teaching and research in Magdeburg. A variety of academic institutions lend the city a sense of dynamic development. They offer attractive jobs for highly qualified employees. This has a positive impact on demographic change, as well as the culture, social status and quality of life in the city. At the same time, as cooperation partners for industry, they are an important economic factor for the region as a whole.
Science and research are changing the cityscape. The University Campus has become an attractive part of the city. Directly alongside the river Elbe, in close proximity to Otto von Guericke University, a new quarter for research and innovative companies is developing in the Science Port.
