To ensure that Germany can fulfil its potential as a hub of innovation, competent management on all levels of policy, programmes and projects is needed. This is precisely our speciality at DLR Projektträger. Here, we focus mainly on innovation, interdisciplinarity and internationality.
Innovation starts with ideas. But this alone is not enough: only through targeted research and development is it possible for an innovation process to culminate in new products, sustainable methods and viable services. We are available as competent partners for our clients in all areas: we reliably design and support the whole process of promoting innovation. Our broad range of experience covers the entire value chain. Our knowledge of industries and markets and how they relate to the scientific community as a whole are key resources to enable innovation on a regional, national and international level.
Whether it is sustainable energy supply, secure data protection or the social and economic consequences of demographic transformation, individual disciplines will no longer be able to solve the challenges faced by our society at present. Today, innovation generally occurs on the cutting edge between various disciplines. The German ministries are equally aware of the importance of this collaboration, prompting them to support interdisciplinary research projects. Drawing on the broad range of topical fields and the expertise of our employees across an immense variety of disciplines, we at the DLR Project Management Agency are perfectly equipped to provide the required know-how. In this way, we are able to contribute to and actively implement technical assistance in interdisciplinary research funding. The close ties that we maintain with the relevant stakeholder enable us to recognise and incorporate emerging trends at an early stage.
Knowledge does not stop at national borders. Germany’s aim – to build networks with partners from across the globe, incorporate international knowledge into the German research community and continue strengthening Germany’s position as a hub of research and innovation.
The DLR Project Management Agency partners are located throughout the world. We provide conceptual and organisational support in the planning, implementation and evaluation of international cooperation throughout Europe and the world. In addition, we assist German institutions seeking to participate in international networks and transnational projects. We support our clients in shaping their international relations and the execution of their tasks within European and global institutions, organisations and committees.
