Welcome to the “Germany – Land of Innovation” Archive.

Germany means high tech, renewable energy, climate protection, sustainable mobility, better living, individualised medicine, architecture and design, research, science, and education. It is a place to study and live, a source of innovation, an attractive place to invest and much more.

The project aimed to present a modern and positive image of Germany to an Australian audience of students, junior academics, and young professionals. In the long term, the aim was to intensify cooperation, bilateral relations and an active exchange of ideas.

This blog was part of the social media platform of the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany in Canberra, Australia.

The “Germany – Land of Innovation” project ran from May 2017 to December 2017.
