Digitalisation as a new market
Innovation is shifting from mechanical to electrical to digital technologies, opening up a multitude of new opportunities. Lusatia’s companies have mastered this diversity and use it in the development and production of modern agricultural machinery, complex vehicle electronics and software for global concerns, the rail network, as well as for small and medium-sized enterprises. Modern metal processing goes hand in hand with IT security and global cloud solutions.
New economic fields
5G telecommunication is opening up new economic fields in Lusatia, not only on the ground in autonomous driving or smart farming, but soon in automated flying in the Hoyerswerda region as well. The technological basis of Lusatia provides as an outstanding platform for the mobility of the future, autonomous and electrical, based on renewable energy sources. Siemens and Alstom have gone a long way towards setting the course for new vehicle and hydrogen technologies.
Lusatia puts people first: as dedicated skilled workers, neighbours, or simply as fellow human beings, young or old. Their medical care is being improved in an exemplary manner with the SOS-NET care network for stroke patients even beyond larger cities and medical services for rural areas can rely on an existing innovative telemedicine platform.
Clusters and networks
Silicon Saxony provides Lusatia with access to one of the largest microelectronics and IT clusters in the world. In addition, the Cluster ICT, Media and Kreative Industries offers further opportunities for networking information technology enterprises.
