Angela Merkel calls CeBIT a "fair for good ideas"
The Federal Chancellor announced a second IT summit, to be held at the end of this year. It will seek to promote the joint high-tech-related activities of the industrial, scientific and political domains. The object was to orient innovation policy toward a total of 17 fields with outstanding future prospects. Besides information and telecommunications technologies these included, among others, energy-, health care-, and nanotechnology, the Federal Chancellor observed. Ms. Merkel emphasized the importance of RFID technology, with regard to which existing endeavors "will need to be coordinated," and of traffic engineering. Without digital technologies Europe would not be able to achieve its CO2 emissions reduction targets, Ms. Merkel declared.
