The Sino German Hi-Tech Park (SGHTP) is an innovation and cooperation platform for economic and scientific cooperation between Germany and China. It was founded in 2016 by the Chinese entrepreneur Prof. Dr. Sompo Chou with the aim of making joint entrepreneurial and scientific activities innovative and intensifying processes within the framework of the national strategies Industry 4.0 and China 2025. The focus here is on the core areas of Digitisation & IT/Industry 4.0/Mobility/Life Science and Environmental Technology. Education and training of skilled workers is another priority area.
The SGHTP is based on its extensive and growing network of experts, companies, business organisations and political institutions in Germany and China. The network is coordinated by two centres: The “GERMAN OFFSHORE CENTER” (GOC) for economic zones, companies and institutions from China and on the other side the “CHINA GATEWAY CENTER” (CGC) for German companies and scientific institutions. Both centres are located in the “TechTower”, – the headquarters of the SGHTP with approx. 10,000 sqm in Heidelberg. The China Office of the SGHTP is located in Beijing.
