German research is thriving, says Research Minister
Speaking in front of the German parliament on the state of German Research on 13 May, Ms Bulmahn outlined the government's plans for Germany's research system and explained that the country is a leader on the world stage in cutting edge technologies such as biotechnology and nanotechnology.
'Production in research-intensive industries is experiencing faster growth than in other sectors,' Ms Bulmahn told the parliament. Germany exports 15.6 per cent of the world's research-intensive goods, second only to the US, and files more patents than the US, UK or France, added Ms Bulmahn.
