Pact for Research and Innovation

The Pact for Research and Innovation was signed by the heads of Germany’s federal and regional governments on June 23, 2005. The federal government and Länder undertook to support German research organizations up to and including the year 2010, thereby enabling these organizations to plan for the future with a greater degree of confidence. In return, the scientific and research organizations agreed to increase the quality, efficiency and performance of their respective research and development activities.
