This year, the joint stand of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy will focus on Industrie 4.0, energy efficiency and innovation. It will offer a wide range of exhibits and a broad spectrum of advice, ranging from assistance for research and innovation to energy efficiency, advice on new start-ups, the Make it in Germany skills campaign, and how to protect your ideas for commercial exploitation. Numerous companies and institutions will be participating at the joint stand. They will be presenting research and development projects which have been assisted by various programmes and initiatives run by the Ministry since a forward-looking policy on industry and small and medium-sized enterprises opens up prospects for higher employment in Germany on a lasting basis.
