As a public-private partnership between the city of Wolfsburg and Volkswagen AG, the company provides important incentives in the fields of activity of Mobility Business and Research, Leisure and Tourism, Health, Education and Energy and the Environment.
Qualified staff are essential for a company’s competitiveness. Wolfsburg AG works as a partner of a number of regional training and further education initiatives. Contemporary training and qualification measures strengthen Wolfsburg as an educational location.
By supporting children’s education at an early age, we create the right conditions to ensure that they have a sound knowledge as adults. We actively respond to the transition taking place in the world of work by offering a number of opportunities for lifelong learning.
The field of HealthBusiness is an important emerging market. Together with its partners, Wolfsburg AG is committed to creating a healthy and pleasant living environment. We also aim to explore the economic potential of the health sector for Wolfsburg. We follow trends and act as a driving force behind innovative ideas and business models. Our activities help to create jobs and a wide variety of healthcare services, which in turn benefits Wolfsburg as an excellent place to live.
Nowadays, the issues of energy, the environment and resources have become a top priority. We are committed to developing sustainable innovations and using them to protect the environment at the Wolfsburg location. Concepts and measures for alternative energy production not only protect the climate and resources, but also offer a number of excellent opportunities for the economy. We generate and coordinate future-oriented projects that take the entire value creation chain into consideration.
Wolfsburg AG is committed to ensuring that Wolfsburg is not only an attractive place to work but also an excellent place to live. We contribute towards improving the quality of life in Wolfsburg and revitalising the city by creating leisure facilities and activities. Our work in this area has helped us to increase the number of jobs available in the service sector and improve the public image of the Wolfsburg location. On top of this, we also want to enable the city to establish a reputation as a tourist destination.
The mobility business is the key factor for economic growth and employment in the Wolfsburg region. Wolfsburg AG combines skills and expertise and develops the location into a hotspot and central meeting place for the automotive industry. Our aim is to establish Wolfsburg and the surrounding region as a globally recognised centre of expertise for the automotive industry. We serve as a link between the city of Wolfsburg and Volkswagen AG in order to strengthen the supplier industry in the region.
Wolfsburg AG is dedicated to supporting dynamic and sustainable economic development in the region. Company start-ups and relocations act as an important driving force behind structural change, economic growth and secure employment on a long-term basis. We support both start-ups and experienced companies by providing them with comprehensive consulting, financial and other services.
Our +raum enables us to demonstrate the possibilities of Ambient Assisted Living (AAL). The technical assistance systems featured in the apartment provide people in all kinds of circumstances with accessible living and more independent lives.

The products in the apartment have won the "universal design award" and impress visitors with their simple and self-explanatory functions. The next stage of the project involves plans to create a service platform and a centre of expertise.
