Life sciences as growth driver

The life sciences sector is enjoying dynamic growth and already accounts for more than 70,000 jobs at around 3600 companies. It is consequently of prime importance for Hannover Region. This success can be attributed the numerous internationally renowned institutions such as Hannover Medical School (MHH), the University of Veterinary Medicine (TiHo) and the International Neuroscience Institute (INI). Top-level research institutes and universities offer business enterprises a wide range of options for in-depth scientific cooperation. Located in the immediate vicinity of the MHH, Hannover Medical Park creates an optimum cluster. Klinikum Hannover Region also enjoys an excellent reputation: it is responsible for the management of ten hospitals, making it one of the largest municipally owned hospital groups in Germany. One of the highlights of this sector is the BIOTECHNICA, the leading European life sciences fair, which is held at Hannover exhibition centre every two years.

Made in Hannover: home to major players

World famous brands have earned Hannover Region an outstanding international reputation as a business location. The automobile industry is especially prominent and includes flagship technical enterprises such as Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, Continental, Johnson Controls and WABCO. Many other household names, including Bahlsen, BAUKING, BREE, Heise, KIND Hörgeräte, Komatsu, MTU Maintenance, Rossmann, Sennheiser electronic, Solvay Deutschland, TUI and VSM, are all located here. Major insurance companies such as Concordia, VGH and VHV, and also the Talanx Group, which includes the Hannover Re and HDI brands, as well as financial services provider Swiss Life all have their headquarters in Hannover. The amazing architecture of the Nord/LB headquarters dominates the city skyline; alongside Sparkasse Hannover, it is one of the leading banks in Northern Germany. The media sector is represented by premium players such as the publishing companies Madsack and Schlütersche Verlagsgesellschaft as well as television producer TVN. In addition to the two major German TV channels NDR and ZDF, various private radio and television companies also broadcast from Hannover, for instance radio ffn, Antenne Niedersachsen, RADIO 21 and CHANNEL 21, a teleshopping channel.

Perfectly networked in the heart of Europe

As a trade fair and business venue, Hannover Region benefits enormously from its central location in the European transport network. This is where the major west-eastbound and north-southbound road connections, the A2 and A7 motorways, intersect. The Deutsche Bahn ICE high-speed rail network provides direct connections to all German conurbations. Hannover’s central bus station (ZOB) is rated as one of the most modern anywhere in Germany and is served by all major long-distance coach lines and by all main tour operators. Various airlines take you from Hannover Airport straight to all key European destinations and the Mittelland Canal, the longest man-made waterway in Germany, links Hannover with the largest seaports and inland ports on the continent.


Comprehensive service for setting up a business, career/jobs, vocational education and training as well as for courses of study is available on the Specialists Hannover internet portal. Concentrated information about Hannover Region is available in compact form as a free app called “Hannover Pro”.

Elliott Advisors (UK) Limited Statement on Telecom Italia23.3.2018 07:00Pressemelding

Given the momentum behind Elliott's campaign at Telecom Italia to improve both performance and governance, Elliott was not surprised to see yesterday's resignation of seven board members affiliated with Vivendi. Unable to advance any meritorious arguments, the Board has simply abandoned their posts to stall for time. Elliott regards this action as cynical and self-serving, in that it delays the ability of Telecom Italia shareholders to express their votes at the upcoming AGM. This is yet another example of minority shareholder rights at Telecom Italia being abrogated and the continued disregard of corporate governance best practice. Finally, Vivendi should note Elliott's forty-year track record of consistent value creation, and sustained, long-term commitments to expose poor governance and catalyse positive change; Elliott's investment history in Telecom Italia dates back to 1999, well before Vivendi became a shareholder in the Company.
