My blog as Chairman of DLR has been set up to communicate internally and externally, focusing not only on general topics but also giving more personal insights. With this in mind, here, at the turn of the year, is the first article.
Is 2010 a magic number? No, but it is a numerical call to action for the dawning decade. This call is especially valid for the German Aerospace Center and its exciting topics: aviation, space, energy, transport and security. The current financial and economic situation requires a clear course for innovation, particularly for countries like Germany, which does not depend for its future on resources in the ground but on ideas and their implementation. This can, in the case of DLR, only succeed if the forces that want to support DLR really do so!
A happy and successful new year to you, dear readers.
The ‘Jan Wörner’ blog was written by Johann-Dietrich ‘Jan’ Wörner during his time as the Chairman of the Executive Board of the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR). Jan Wörner wrote all the posts himself and then sent them to DLR Corporate Communications for editing, picture research and online publication.
