Research landscape

Excellent, innovative, open-minded – research in Germany enjoys an outstanding reputation around the world. And not without good reason: its innovative spirit and scientific curiosity have made Germany one of the most agile actors when it comes to developing and patenting products and processes. The country is one of the world’s leading research nations, especially in future-oriented fields. No small part in this is played by the superb research infrastructure and broad-based research at universities, non-university research organisations, research-based companies and the country’s federal and state research institutions.
