Darmstadt is a city in the Bundesland (federal state) of Hesse in Germany, located in the southern part of the Rhine Main Area near Frankfurt.

As the administrative centre of the increasingly prosperous duchy of Hessen-Darmstadt, the city gained in prominence during the last centuries. In the 20th century, industry (especially pharmaceuticals and chemicals) as well as large science and electronics (later information technology) sectors became increasingly important, and are still a major part of the city's economy.

Darmstadt also has a large tertiary education sector, with three major universities and numerous associated institutions. It is the site of the Darmstadt University of Technology, renowned for its engineering departments, and of the Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences. Related institutes are four Institutes of the Fraunhofer Society, and the Gesellschaft für Schwerionenforschung (GSI, "Society for Heavy Ion Research"), which operates a particle accelerator at its Wixhausen site.

The GSI, amongst other elements, discovered the chemical element Darmstadtium (atomic number: 110), named after the city in 2003. This makes Darmstadt one of only eight cities with an element named after it. The conference takes place at the Darmstadtium Congress Center next to the city campus of TU Darmstadt.

The European Space Operations Centre (ESOC) of the European Space Agency is located in Darmstadt. From here, various deep-space exploration spacecraft and Earth-orbiting satellites are operated for the purposes of scientific research, and tecnnology development and demonstration.
