Thuringia, and Jena in particular, is an internationally renowned high-tech location for photonics. Some 16,500 skilled workers work on innovative products and technologies in 180 companies and numerous research institutes. The region’s recipe for success can be traced back to the revolutionary achievements of Jena’s triumvirate of Carl Zeiß, Ernst Abbe and Otto Schott in microscope construction over 150 years ago – the close interaction of business and science.
