#Smart Production Park
The new start-up incubator in southwest Germany
Cyberlab is expanding its facilities, adding the Smart Production Park, a new start-up and growth center for new companies, specialised in smart production.
It is currently being built on the site of the well-known Hoepfner brewery. Financed by the city of Karlsruhe and the federal state Baden-Württemberg and operated by CyberForum in cooperation with Karlsruhe’s department for Communal Business Development. The Smart Production Park is located in a prime inner-city location and surrounded by numerous attractive IT companies and research institutions.
When does it open?
April 2021: Opening "Werkstatt10"
July 2022: Completion of the second construction phase
September 2022: Full completion and handover to CyberForum
What is the "Werkstatt10"?
Werkstatt10, part of the new incubator, is a production hall for heavy machinery with connections to high-voltage current and compressed air. Here, start-ups can get ready individually – working on machine prototypes, even up to small production lines. In the past, beer barrels from the Hoepfner brewery were stored in this building.
