The Heidelberg Technology Park has provided laboratories, clean rooms and offices for scientific and technological companies for more than three decades. We have become one of the prime locations for research-intensive company start-ups and growth companies worldwide. Our tenants value their proximity to renowned research facilities and companies, as well as the quality of life in Heidelberg.
Our Im Neuenheimer Feld location is predominantly tenanted by biotech companies: Due to its proximity to the university and medical campus, high-tech company start-ups in particular have been settling here since the 80s.
The Heidelberg Technology Park has been densely populated with such facilities promoting research and development ever since it opened its doors. It therefore stands to reason that the BioRN leading-edge cluster also be based in the technology park itself.
Ever since InnovationLab, the leading-edge cluster for organic electronics in Heidelberg, was set up and the Center for Advanced Materials at Heidelberg University opened this year, Heidelberg has established itself as the central location for this new leading-edge technology.
The Heidelberg Technology Park takes up the theme and has been building a new location on the site of the constantly growing top cluster on Carl-Friedrich-Gauß-Ring. The aim of the InnovationLab is to print electronic components on a mass scale in an energy and environmentally friendly manner. Printed electronics will thus replace the well-known semiconductor technology and open up completely new possibilities for design, technology and sustainability. Since 2019, the Business Development Center Heidelberg has also been providing 4,400 square meters of offices, laboratories, workshops and S2 wet labs, as well as CoWorking Spaces, SeedLabs, Café and Conference Center, for founders in the electronics sector.
In addition to biotechnology and printed electronics, the technology park in Heidelberg also houses a large number of environmental engineering firms at the Heinsteinwerk location. Following extensive reconstruction, the former factory building offers a total of six floors of office space for up to 17 rental units, as well as a restaurant on the ground floor.
This creates the ideal atmosphere for engineering firms to develop technical and technological procedures that help protect the environment and restore already damaged ecosystems.
Our business incubator is the first port of call for young and creative minds wanting to set up and locate their new company. It is funded by the city of Heidelberg and the Initiative for Start-ups and Business Transfers (ifex) of the Ministry of Economic Affairs of Baden-Württemberg, with funds from the European Social Fund, and managed by Technologiepark Heidelberg GmbH.
As part of the rental agreement, young companies benefit from the support of HeidelbergStartupPartners. No specific industry is targeted—each and every idea is welcome and deserves a chance.
Regardless of whether you have managed to secure a place at one of our technology parks, or are a successful company with your own offices or a service provider operating worldwide, you can benefit from both our services and our network. An associate membership grants you the same benefits our tenants enjoy, no matter where your company is located.

With more than 40,000 m2 of laboratory, commercial, and industrial space, the Im Neuenheimer Feld location is the core of the Heidelberg Technology Park. Due to its integration into the Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg (Heidelberg University) campus, there is a special emphasis on science and research here. Here, students, young scientists, and start-up founders, as well as experienced entrepreneurs and lecturers, work together in a creative and vibrant atmosphere. Nowhere is it easier to find young talent than at a location where business is at the cutting edge of science.
In addition to Im Neuenheimer Feld, the Heidelberg Technology Park BioPark at our Czernyring location, the second largest business park, has an area of 6,000 m2 dedicated to pharmaceutical biotechnology. The companies located here are a significant part of the scientific and business collaboration network of the Heidelberg Technology Park.
The Bahnstadt campus strengthens Heidelberg’s position as a center for the knowledge-based economy: Here, internationally mobile scientists as well as business experts and executives enjoy the attractive combination of working and living on campus. In addition, high-quality international educational facilities are available for families with children in Heidelberg.
Together with the city of Heidelberg, the non-profit Max-Jarecki-Stiftung (Max Jarecki Foundation) is currently developing 5.5 hectares of land in the Bahnstadt location to promote interdisciplinary collaboration and knowledge transfer on campus.

The UmweltPark (Environmental Park) is a further trendsetting high-tech location in the city on the Neckar. The first environmental technology and environmental economics companies settled in the technology park as early as the mid 80s.
In 2005, the Umweltkompetenzzentrum Rhein-Neckar e. V. (UKOM) opened its own environmental competence center here, in the Heinstein factories established in 1911: A total of 1,700 m2 of thinking space specifically designed for the needs of this growth industry. Due to high demand, the construction of an annex is already underway this year. All this to achieve even more dynamism and progress at this high-tech location for the environment in Heidelberg.
The business incubator provides comprehensive support for company start-ups and start-up projects. It is located at Hans-Bunte-Strasse 8–10, 69123 Heidelberg, funded by the city of Heidelberg and the Initiative for Start-ups and Business Transfers (ifex) of the Ministry of Economic Affairs of Baden-Württemberg, with funds from the European Social Fund, and managed by Technologiepark Heidelberg GmbH.
Since October 2019, the Business Development Center (BDC) has been complementing the portfolio of the Technology Park Heidelberg as an additional location. The BDC offers over 4,000 square meters of space for offices and laboratories for rent. It provides young companies (e.g., from the high-tech and biotechnology sectors) with office space, laboratories, and cleanroom-capable areas in Heidelberg, allowing them the opportunity to continue growing in Heidelberg. In addition to the functional and individually customizable infrastructure, there are also public areas in the building in the form of conference rooms, a cafeteria, and CoWorking spaces.
Flexibility, versatility, and top-notch infrastructure make the BDC a high-tech nucleus. Future tenants will find a variety of supportive measures and opportunities to develop an idea into a startup and products.
As of January 2024, the new location of the Technology Park Heidelberg can be fully occupied by tenants at Nikola-Tesla-Str. 1 on the premises of the Heidelberg Innovation Park (hip). State-of-the-art office and laboratory spaces were created on a total of four floors using passive building methods. In addition to the existing spaces for micro-enterprises, rental units for medium-sized companies have been established in LAB22. The building is divided into two halves, the first construction phase already completed houses WetLabs and CoWorking Spaces, in the second half of the building, which will be completed by the end of 2023, Private Labs and Office Spaces will be able to settle.
Our new location will join the various commitments of the Technology Park Heidelberg and its partners. Through its versatile locations and spaces, the Technology Park Heidelberg can provide a lifecycle for companies from the founding to significant growth. The Technology Park Heidelberg pursues this vision with passion and sustainability.
