Up-to-date information on the German region of Hamburg and its strengths in the research and innovation sector is now available on CORDIS, the Community Research and Development Information Service. The Hamburg Region Research and Innovation Service has just been launched, with an introduction providing extensive information about the second largest city in Germany, located on the River Elbe and close to the shores of the North Sea. Beside its sea port, which is the largest in Germany, Hamburg is known for its strong industry and its important role in media and telecommunication services. The technological focus, however, is on the aerospace and medical industries reflected by many international companies present in the city. In research and development (R&D), Hamburg's strength lies in marine, climate and environmental research, material sciences, research on nanostructures, laser physics, particle physics, synchrotron radiation, medicinal biotechnology, and information and communication technologies. Due to its traditional role as a sea port, Hamburg was previously focused on trade and services. More recently, it has been following a new metropolitan concept, one of the leitmotifs being 'Hamburg - Metropolis of Knowledge'; this is an attempt to strengthen Hamburg as a research and university location. More details can be found in the 'Innovation' section of the new service. In the 'What's new?' section, the service shows information on research- and innovation-related events. Finally, an extensive list of links gives direct access to the most important research and innovation actors, including regional authorities, research institutes, networks and technology transfer organisations.
