The German Center for Research and Innovation (DWIH) team wishes all of our E-NNOVATION GERMANY readers happy holidays and a healthy and successful new year!

In this newsletter we will highlight some of our events from 2017 which further enhanced the visibility of Germany as a land of ideas. We will also give you a brief overview of the topics we will be focusing on in 2018. 

We are looking forward to relaunching our Website next year with a fresh look and easy to access information about our activities and the German research and innovation landscape.

Of course we invite you to take a look at our current website for the latest event videos, podcasts, interviews, as well as information about funding opportunities and technology parks in Germany.
