The intention of the leading-edge cluster Electric Mobility South-West is to establish electric mobility in Germany and to turn Baden-Wuerttemberg into a world-leading region for electro-mobile solutions. The cluster makes use of the unique potential which the region Karlsruhe - Mannheim - Stuttgart - Ulm offers in cross-linking amongst other well-respected SMEs and large enterprises from the automotive technology, energy technology, information and communication technology (lCT) as well as the cross-sectional field of production technology. A further objective of the cluster is to create a link between above-mentioned industries and local research institutes. The cluster management is handled by e-mobil BW GmbH, the regional agency for electric vehicles and fuel cell technology in Baden-Wuerttemberg. With its more than 80 stakeholders from industry, universities and research institutes the cluster is one of the largest regional networks in the field of electric mobility.
