Funding Agency, commissioned by the BMBF

Düsseldorf, Germany


Presentation is part of the Internationalization Strategy

Four main pillars

3. Strengthening the cooperation with developing countries in education, research and development

1. Systematically increasing the cooperation with the best researchers worldwide

4. Taking international responsibility to master global challenges

2. Opening up international innovation potentials

Accompanying measures

Presence abroad and international monitoring of R&D

Promoting Germany as location for higher education, research and innovation

In accordance with the European strategy

Country and regional strategies

Strategic monitoring and revision

general approach the german high tech strategy
General Approach: The German High-Tech-Strategy

Germany's High-Tech-Strategy: an answer to future challenges

  • Implement a coordinated and focused innovation policy
  • Use Germany's potential for future lead markets
  • Global competition is an opportunity
  • Make Germany a talent lab
  • Knowledge and responsibility go hand in hand

nano initiative action plan 2010
Nano-Initiative – Action Plan 2010
  • Part of the High-Tech-Strategy
  • Started November 2006
  • Joint initiative of 8 ministries
  • Details at

Nano-Initiative – Action Plan 2010

  • Basic Elements:
  • Rapid transfer of nanotechnological research results into innovations;Utilization of Nanotechnology for the most important industrial sectors
  • Elimination of innovation barriers and improvement of frameworkconditions by a joint approach of all involved ministries
  • Evaluation of effects of nanomaterials on health and environment
  • Communication with the public about chances and risks of Nanotechnology
  • Identifying future research needs

Opening up future markets

Leading Edge Innovations / Innovation Alliances

  • are orientated towards added-value chains with high economic potential
  • help to create new jobs and to strengthen the innovative potential of industry (esp. SME)
  • support strong markets / address new markets
  • extraordinary investments in R&D by the industry
  • take into account social demands

Development of a powerful, high-capacity lithium ion-

battery for mobile and stationary applications

Mobile field: Batteries for electric cars

Stationary field: Storage of renewably generated energy


new generation of battery, no up-scaling

new concepts for materials, construction and systemintegration necessary


multidisciplinary cluster projects (guided by industry and

research institutions); support of young excellent scientists

co-ordination with other complementing activities

Example: Innovation Alliance Lithium-Ion Battery(just starting)


National infrastructures - Competence centers

  • Active since 1998
  • Formation of a network infrastructure
  • Contact partner of the BMBF
  • Public relation
  • Education and qualification
  • Cooperation in innovation


  • Support for start-ups and spin-offs

Future aim

  • Intensifying the cooperation

between networks
