September 8th 2022
Hessen is an economically vibrant state at the heart of Europe. Located at the intersection of international transport axes and the fiscal center of the Eurozone, Hessen has evolved to become one of the continent's strongest regions and a dynamic science, innovation, and business hub.
The seminar will show why the state of Hessen - and the Central Hessen region more specifically – is the ideal environment for growing companies from France and Belgium in the fields of hydrogen and mobility to further internationalize their activities.  Moreover, it will showcase, why companies in that sector already decided to become part of this vibrant ecosystem.
Hessen Trade & Invest offers a strategic link between investor advisory services, location marketing, foreign trade, technology and innovation promotion and competent advice on EU financing and cooperation programs. In Hessen, HTAI works closely with regional partners in north and central Hessen, the FrankfurtRheinMain GmbH in the south of Hessen, and with more than 130 partners at the local level.
The Regional Management Mittelhessen strengthens and markets the business and university location Central Hessen. The alliance of business, science and politics is active in the fields of investment promotion, infrastructure, education and skilled labor as well as innovation.

From October 17 to 20, the Regional Management Mittelhessen is planning an inbound delegation trip on the topic of hydrogen for companies from France and Belgium. The aim of the delegation trip is to provide information about the location and to highlight cooperation and investment opportunities in the region. Further information will be provided in our seminar.
