Hager Group supports East Side Fab

The Saarland Ministry for Economic Affairs, Labour, Energy and Transport is breaking new ground in promoting innovation. By establishing an innovative interaction & development workshop known as the East Side Fab, the Ministry is taking a key step towards developing innovative collaboration among companies from different sectors.

At Hager Group, we both welcome and actively support this step. The project aims to foster new networks in the worlds of business, politics and research and promote collaboration and new start-ups. Minister for Economic Affairs Anke Rehlinger inaugurated the new East Side Fab on Eschberger Weg in Saarbrücken on 30th September. “The East Side Fab will act as a basis and a hub: from here, we want to promote the development of new business ideas, strengthening Saarland’s economic innovation and our region’s start-up scene,” she commented at the opening.
