Acceptance of industry in Germany as a business location – state of research, experiences and approaches

The industry is an engine of growth in Germany. It generates almost a quarter of the value added and has contributed to Germany's largely unscathed survival in the international financial crisis. Despite these successes, the industry is confronted with challenges of lack of public acceptance. This is where the iit study comes in. In a systematic review, scientific studies, campaigns and measures for industry acceptance were broadly screened and processed. The phenomenon "industry acceptance" was analysed in detail quantitatively and qualitatively, possible acceptance drivers and barriers were identified and recommendations for action were derived. The study was conducted in cooperation with Technopolis Deutschland GmbH.
