Economic Promotion

The Erfurt Economic Promotion Authority supports Erfurt-based and Erfurt-interested businesses. We accompany investors in searching for a convenient location, in aquiring and qualifying specialised staff, in establishing connections to co-operation partners in Erfurt, in applying for subsidies and in dealing with the local authorities. Our service includes consulting from your idea of coming to Erfurt to the opening of your new place of business.

Are you a prospective or experienced business owner? The state capital of Thuringia, Erfurt, always strives to make your dealings with the city administration as pleasant and simple as possible.  

The city emphasises the seriousness of this matter by being a member of the "RAL Gütegemeinschaft Mittelstandsorientierte Kommunalverwaltung e. V.” (RAL Quality Assurance Association for SME-oriented municipal administration). Erfurt was the first of the 16 state capitals, and the first city in eastern Germany, to be awarded this association‘s quality mark in 2008.
