Campaigns to date

The international campaigns of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) foster innovation by supporting international cooperation with nations of high research and technology potential.

Each campaign is dedicated to a priority topic or a partner nation and invites relevant top-class research networks based in Germany to showcase their projects, technologies and innovation competence abroad. This allows the networks to meet international partners and forge bonds to advance research and technology and develop solutions for pressing challenges of the future.
