Research Centre Warnemünde




With a population of around 200,000 inhabitants Rostock is the largest and most influential city in Mecklenburg West Pomerania. The commercial profile of the Hanse- und Universitätsstadt Rostock is distinguished by the maritime traditions emanating from the harbour in Rostock. As early as in the heyday of the Hanseatic League this was an extremely important hub and is indeed today one of the most important ferry harbours on the Baltic Rim.

Warnemünde is the most northerly district in Rostock and is well-known far beyond its own horizons as an idyllic holiday destination. But apart from that, Warnemünde is also not only the home of the largest and most modern shipyard in Mecklenburg West Pomerania. In recent years the Baltic seaside resort has developed into a high-quality and exclusive commercial and technology location of international standing.

Scientific work and tuition has had a firm place in Rostock since the foundation of the University in 1419. There are currently studying, at what is one of the oldest universities in Northern Europe, an astounding figure of more than 13,000 young people from all over the world pursuing 55 different study courses. Offering research and tuition in its eight faculties it provides a highly-specialised development potential which makes waves far beyond the immediate surrounding commercial location.

In recent years technology-oriented branches of industry have come into focus in ever increasing numbers. Several technology centres have come into being in Rostock and they collaborate in a network which embraces overlapping areas of specialisation, setting new standards in research and development.
