Research and Innovation

Education Minister Annette Schavan explains the main priorities in research policy in an interview led by Marco Finetti and Tanjev Schultz. The key objective is "to introduce full financing, something universities have been calling for for some time now. This way we would be making it clear that it's worthwhile to conduct research at universities. That's where top researchers belong – close to students. Moreover, we intend to intensify cooperation between academic research and the economy. By doing so, we hope to repeat the success we had in laser technology. Germany was way behind in that area 20 years ago, but today we're global market leaders. We also want to focus on setting up top research centres in the field of medicine. Health care needs to benefit more from basic research. Finally, we want to concentrate on climate and energy research."
