The German Maritime Research Strategy 2025 offers two funding initiatives including the “Maritime Research Programme” that supports the national research community as well as the industry for ship-building and marine technologies. Project Management Jülich (Forschungszentrum Jülich) coordinates both
Large public organisations tend to create a huge amount of knowledge through commissioned research studies. However, making use of this knowledge often is difficult as technical or scientific reports may be voluminous and/or difficult to digest for non-expert readers.
40 years ago the first energy research programme of the German government was launched. For the first time this programme provided a structure for non-nuclear energy research. Funded are single projects of limited duration as well as large research institutions over longer time spans.
Fossil fuels are becoming rare and more expensive and lead both to high CO2 emissions and to climate change. Therefore alternatives to oil and gas are needed. The German industry and government (as part of the High-Tech-Strategy for Germany) are funding applied research for propulsion systems and
The transport sector has a high energy dependency and environmental impacts. It remains a major cause of pollution and noise and has impacts on ecosystems and landscapes. Limiting these problems is of key importance and a requirement of France's international commitments (Kyoto protocol). To achieve
The sustainable development of transport has to be achieved by means of closed systems in order to minimise the use of materials and energy consumption which are necessary for the transportation of passengers and freight. Traffic emissions (air pollutants and noise) must not lead to unacceptable
This programme was conceived to improve the economy competitiveness and to ensure a sustainable economic development and to provide scientific and technological support necessary to carry out activities specific to the nuclear energetic, in compliance with the requirements of nuclear safety and with
