Today’s global challenges show that they can no longer be solved by single nations efforts alone. Therefore German’s Federal Government has an initiative for the Internationalization of Education, Science, and Research.
Germany is one of the world’s leading countries in research and development. This is due to its strong support of research. The country has set itself to spend 3.5 percent of gross domestic product (2019: 3,19%) on research and development by 2025; this would be one of the highest proportions worldwide.
Germany finances infrastructure and institutions and supports university-based high-end research and researching companies, cooperation between industry and science, and startups with innovative business.
Science and Research can make essential contributions to intercultural understanding and help to stabilize crises.
