SMEs are the backbone of the German economy. Its economic success is a determining factor for prosperity and employment. It is therefore worrying that innovation activities of SMEs have been declining in recent years. Currently, many measures are being discussed in politics which seem appropriate to encourage SMEs to pursue further innovation activities. The speaker will present current initiatives of "Promoting Innovation for SMEs" and in this context, he will also explain the importance of AiF for the performance of the innovation system.
