International networking funded

Germany’s federal education ministry has chosen 11 clusters and networks of academics and businesses to support with a total of up to €4 million as part of the country’s hi-tech strategy.

In a press release on 9 June, the ministry says that Germany is second only to China for exporting research-intensive goods, and that government support for highly innovative clusters will help it to maintain this position.

Johanna Wanka, Germany’s research minister, said: “Germany will continue to be a world leader in the export of hi-tech goods in the future. To that end we are promoting the global networking of science and industry. This initiative will help companies, universities and research institutions to take part in international innovation processes and actively shape them.”
