Since mid-2014, AFBW has been based in the centre of Stuttgart at the Verband Südwesttextil (Association for textiles in the south-west). Numerous new and interesting synergies have been achieved through this fortunate connection.

AFBW - Added value through the network

What we do

We connect science and business, people and markets, technologies and fields of application – from the fibre to the finished product. Our most important task is the transfer of know-how. This is how we create added value in order to give impetus and drive innovation. The aim of our work is to promote the competitiveness of companies, universities and research institutes in the region.

How we do it

Across sectors – We work with and for many sectors.

  • Across the federal state – We represent the interests of companies and institutions in Baden-Württemberg. The world is our market.
  • Excellence – Professionalism is important to us. Our expertise is reflected in the Baden-Württemberg and European cluster label.

Good. Better. Excellent.

AFBW is the first network operating across the whole federal state in the south-west that has been awarded the Baden-Württemberg and European cluster label.

Our management is professional and we belong to the thirty most powerful networks in Europe.
