Modern technologies must be adapted to meet the needs of people, both young and old. This is why the Federal Ministry of Education and Research is funding the “Bringing technology to the people” research programme on human-machine interaction.
Microsystems Technology is used everywhere – by suppliers of car parts, in medical technology and in the information and communication sectors. Funding for this key technology is thus an important part of the Federal Government's High-Tech Strategy.
The development of information and communication technologies (ICT) is a driver for major innovations in production and services. Support for this emerging sector has made our country highly competitive and has created many new jobs.
