The base for most of the network partners is located in the strong and highly dynamic business region of Chemnitz. The traditional industrial and research centre is famous for its technology-oriented symbiosis. This is also evident in the wide variety of the companies and R&D institutes based there:
The thermoPre® network of companies, organised under the umbrella of thermoPre e.V., is part of the Chemnitz ATL. This enables network partners to actively participate in many R&D initiatives in the fields of textile engineering and technology and structural and systematic lightweight design. Overall, the Chemnitz ATL coordinates and handles a large number of research and development projects.
