As a subsidiary of the cities of Reutlingen and Tübingen, the TF R-T has actively promoted economic development in the field of advanced technology for 15 years. In order to build directly on innovations in research in the Neckar-Alb region, it offers particular support to university spin-offs in the fields of biotechnology and medical and environmental technology. On the one hand, it acts as an incubator where start-ups and high-tech companies can access tailor-made labs and offices across three modern technology buildings. On the other hand, it supports effective communication with a variety of consultation and networking services. These important factors allow the TF R-T to create a dynamic environment for companies in future-oriented industries.
The Technologiewerkstatt Albstadt is a new center of business and innovation in the Zollernalb district. Not only does it serve as a place of communication between young entrepreneurs and companies working with textile and non-textile technologies, it's also a hub for the transfer of knowledge between universities and businesses – something that will have positive effects on the economy for years to come. Plans are underway for another similarly innovative business incubator with a (textile-based) technological background in Albstadt-Tailfingen. Once it's finished, this former textile industry stronghold will be home to spin-off projects from universities and business start-ups.

The provision of ample parking space and fast Internet connections goes without saying.
