The division Economic development and administrative services consists of four departments: Real Estate & Construction, Corporate Services/Commercial Space, Acquisition and Projects and Commercial Services, and three staff units: Corporate Communications, Legal Services/Investments and Auditing.
The core day-to-day activities in the economic development division encompass sales and business services, innovation support, land development, high rise construction and real estate. For example, the division develops and markets industrial estates on behalf of the regional government, including the Technology Park at the University of Bremen or Bremen Airport-City close to the city's airport. The regeneration of Überseestadt (New Harbour District) is also attracting attention from all over Germany. Bremeninvest also manages around 100 municipally owned properties and sites.
Providing support for companies that are already based in Bremen and attracting new ones to invest in the city are two of the division's main responsibilities. It also implements various funding programmes, supports the Bremen region's innovation cluster and manages the Bremen technology and start-up centres.
The administrative services department is responsible for functions such as HR management/organisation, accounting, finance, IT organisation and HR for the company as a whole.
The support departments responsible for law and equity investments, internal audit and procurement support functions and for corporate communications form part of the division and report directly to the CEO.
