Setting-up the Technology Quarters in close vicinity to the Ruhr-University Bochum, the University of Applied Sciences Bochum, and to the Technology center Ruhr (TZR) has made for the emergence of a promising location for companies acting in the high-tech-sector of Bochum.
Since 1995, the city Bochum – acting as integral part in the development concept for the region „Middle Ruhr“- has been pursuing the goal of developing a valuable location for technology corporations. In order to enable a geographical connection of existing research- and development potentials, it was decided to develop the approx. 12 ha large area. Other than is the case with the BioMedical Science Park Bochum, the technology quarters provides platforms to all technology sectors.
As specified by the site plan, the development of the technology quarters will be realized in a compressed form allowing for three- up to four-story buildings. As of today, there are yet about 10,000 m² available for sale.
