The key technology “electronics” is of central concern and relevance for socially relevant issues such as digitalisation and autonomous electric driving. With the framework programme “Microelectronics from Germany – Driver of Digitalisation Innovation” the federal government intensifies and pools its measures for research and innovation in order to advance microelectronics in and from Germany. The specialised department “Electronics, Autonomous Electric Driving” of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research supports the funding measure on a European and national level to ensure that German innovation abilities are encouraged and promoted.

As project manager VDI/VDE-IT supports the Federal Ministry of Education and Research in the conceptualisation and implementation of funding measures in the areas of electronics and autonomous electric driving. We advise in questions on innovation policy, organise project support and connect research partners.
