Baden-Württemberg - Close integration of the industrial and service sectors brings location advantages in digitization (in German).

A recent study by the Institute for Applied Economic Research (IAW), the Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research ISI and the ZEW - Leibniz Centre for European Economic Research shows that industry-related services in Baden-Württemberg are very strong in innovation. They ensure that SMEs in particular are better able to exploit the opportunities of digitization and increasingly offer digital hybrid services. However, the study also points out that in industry, only some of the companies are benefiting from the service business, while others are withdrawing from it in whole or in part.
