The new Regensburg TechBase innovation centre designed by Nickl & Partner Architekten AG was officially opened on 14 April 2016. Ilse Aigner, Bavarian State Minister for Economic Affairs, Media, Energy and Technology, and Joachim Wolbergs, Mayor of Regensburg, were among the 250 invited guests from government and business.
The TechBase innovation centre has been built on the Regensburg TechCampus with the goal of promoting the existing close collaboration between science and business in Regensburg. It is located near the centre and is directly linked to the Regensburg University Campus. It consists of the Founder and Technology Centre for innovative start-ups and technology-oriented companies erected in the first construction phase and the multi-function Research and Development Building built in the second phase.
In keeping with its importance as the initial building on the site, the TechBase is a striking structure with a distinctive form that defines the identity of the entire site. The high point of the building is oriented toward the new main access, making it highly visible, even from a distance.
