Baden-Württemberg is a federal state home to some 11 million inhabitants in southwestern Germany. It is famous for its tourist highlights, such as the Black Forest and Lake Constance; its universities in Heidelberg, Freiburg, Karlsruhe, Constance, Stuttgart, Ulm, and Tübingen; as well as the companies Daimler, Porsche, SAP, and Bosch. The state is also known for its great writers Friedrich Schiller ("Wilhelm Tell") in particular - and its people are known as "Tüftler", which indicates a great enthusiasm for technical problems and their solutions. Thanks to this open-minded spirit, Baden-Württemberg is ideally positioned to participate in the European Satellite Navigation Competition. Doing so gives its citizens the chance to both take on technical challenges and establish international contacts.
