Setting technology impulses - initiating projects - strengthening networks

Ministry of Economic Affairs, Employment, Transport and Digitalization Niedersachsen supports the transformation of the automotive industry through the implementation of “Transformationsbegleitung” of the Automotive Agentur Niedersachsen.

The state government is making 1.8 million euros available for the years 2022 and 2023 to support the future viability of Niedersachsen’s automotive industry. The planned transformation support will help the mostly small and medium-sized supplier companies in Niedersachsen to successfully master the challenges of the transformation in the automotive industry.

Operational implementation by Automotive Agentur Niedersachsen

The Automotive Agentur Niedersachsen, which has been operating successfully on the market for two years, is responsible for the operational implementation of the transformation support. The team has already accompanied the Strategy Dialogue for the Automotive Industry and, as part of the Innovationszentrum Niedersachsen GmbH, advanced the topic of mobility of the future. This expertise now flows into the transformation support.

By actively initiating projects and cooperations – with the involvement of regional partners from business and science – the transformation support is intended to provide important impulses for successfully shaping the transformation for the companies. In addition, the transformation support offers companies in Niedersachsen the opportunity to contribute their existing best-practice solutions for managing the transformation. Through these measures, a state-wide, targeted transfer of technology and knowledge is achieved. Furthermore, the technology impulses and new qualification approaches set in the strategy dialogue will be continued and further developed.
