Germany’s new High-Tech Strategy aims at moving the country forward on its way to becoming a worldwide innovation leader. The goal is to translate good ideas into innovative products and services quickly, and, consequently, strengthen Germany’s position as a leading industrial and exporting nation.

With the High-Tech Strategy, the German Federal Government has defined six thematic priorities in research and innovation which will be in the focus for funding until at least 2020:

  • Digital economy and society
  • Sustainable economy and energy
  • Innovative workplace
  • Healthy living
  • Intelligent mobility
  • Civil security

Perennial funding programmes are established around these six focus areas, open to all interested entities to apply for funding, from large multinational companies, Small- and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SME’s), and research organisations located in Germany.

Additionally, SME’s are very much the focus of the government’s efforts to promote innovation – notably through the Central Innovation Programme for SMEs (ZIM), which is technology-neutral.
