Our Campaign & Activities
The Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) launched the initiative to "Promote Innovation and Research in Germany" in 2006. Under the brand "Research in Germany" several German organisations, such as the International Bureau of the BMBF, the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, the German Academic Exchange Service, the German Research Foundation and the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft organise measures and events to present German innovation and research in key international markets. The initiative seeks to strengthen and expand R&D collaboration between Germany and international partners.
Several regional campaigns aim to establish long-term cooperation with countries that have a dynamic research environment. Read more about the current campaign in Russia and the expired campaigns in India and South Korea.
Following the “Nanotechnologies” and “Environmental Technologies” campaigns, the current campaign is about the topic of “Green Production Technologies”.
The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation is inviting German universities to develop strategies for more intensive collaboration with its (future) research alumni. Research alumni are international scientists and scholars who have spent time working on research at universities in Germany before continuing their academic careers in other countries.
The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) invites scientists and administrators from medical schools, universities and research institutions to participate in a trip on medical research and graduate education in Germany.
The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) annually hosts press tours for German and foreign journalists. During visits to renowned research institutions, universities and corporate R&D facilities, the journalists are introduced to the German research landscape.
Fraunhofer is turning the spotlight on a few outstanding German technology developers who come out first in a new series of nationwide competitions. Read more and browse the winning business cases in Photovoltaics, Medical Imaging and Sustainable Transportation.
The Humboldt Foundation is building up a cross-organisational network of research alumni in which individuals who have been sponsored by various German research funding and research facilitating organisations are all integrated in a sustainable network.
Under the brand "Research in Germany" several German organisations organise workshops and other measures to inform about the German research landscape and your career opportunities.
