We drive innovative technology solutions
Innovative strength determines competitiveness and thus jobs. In order to master technological challenges, industry, science and politics must create the necessary conditions for optimal location and framework conditions in Germany, in Europe and worldwide. The VDE is both a mediator and a driving force in this process.
VDE studies, analyses, recommendations and position papers provide policymakers with an important basis for technology and education policy decisions. The VDE supports the EU Commission's innovation agenda and the German government's "High-Tech Strategy" with a wide range of measures. Central fields of action of the VDE - in cooperation with the BMBF and other ministries - are research funding and the promotion of future technologies.
