City of Dortmund
Located in the federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia, alongside the ancient Hellweg trading route, Dormund is one of the biggest cities of Germany and the economic and cultural centre of Westphalia.
Dortmund has historically been an industrial area but it has now become home to a number of medium-sized information technology companies, many linked to the local university TechnologieZentrumDortmund program. The city works closely with research institutes, private universities, and companies to collaborate on the commercialization of science initiatives.
