Political Instruments of the BMBF

We are feeling the effects of globalization today more than ever before: On the one hand, Germany is the world's leading export nation; on the other hand however, many companies are moving their headquarters or production facilities to other countries. Germany cannot compete on cost. This is why we have to be better than the competition. However, competitive advantages and concomitant growth opportunities can be tapped only through innovation - with new products, processes and services.

With its High-Tech Strategy and the Internationalization Strategy, the German Government aims to put Germany at the top of the world's ranks in tomorrow's most important markets.
