Located just an hour south of Berlin, Leipzig is a thriving city – as demonstrated by its increasing (and increasingly young) population as well as the growth in employment in recent years. At the heart of a metropolitan region with a population of more than 2.25 million, it’s an attractive place for business, science, the arts – and above all its residents. Out-of-the-box thinking is something Leipzig does well. This life science powerhouse at the heart of Europe is known for its creative mindset and ‘can do’ attitude. The innovations built on research and entrepreneurship from Leipzig are changing the lives of people around the world for the better.
