As a specially assisted region, Altenburg offers the highest rates of grants
for investors: e.g. the Region 1 grant from the EU as well as grant aid
from the Free State of Thuringia with maximum rates of up to 30%.

The grant aid rates can often be increased for small/medium-sized
companies by 15%. Where the structure is improved by the project,
an additional 5% grant can be provided.

In addition, there is additional assistance, e.g. the infrastructure programme
of Thuringia for a technology and founder centre, as well as steps taken for
the establishment of an inter-communal industrial park.
