Location with a future

The right location allows a company to develop in a positive direction, and to expand its resources. The Technology Center Ruhr (TZR) is located in close proximity to Bochum's major universities, and is able to meet the many needs of a company. The TZR offers both start-ups and established medium-sized and industry companies an ideal working environment – surrounded by countless specialists from science and research. Our lessees appreciate the opportunity to make contact with other technology-led companies based at the Technology Center as much as they do our extensive selection of office and workshop space and conference and meeting rooms. Another benefit of our conveniently situated location is its excellent traffic links.
