"Entrepreneurial Regions" (German: Unternehmen Region) involves six ongoing individual programmes that draw on different strategic points of the innovation process.
A successful innovation policy must create optimum framework conditions for innovations. It must take a holistic approach to the innovation process and make suitable funding instruments available at each stage of the process. With “Unternehmen Region”, the Federal Ministry has developed specific support measures for East Germany in order to satisfy particular conditions. The individual programmes build on each other and meet the different needs of the participants in the innovation process.
