acatech – National Academy of Science and Engineering, Germany

The National Academy of Science and Engineering, Germany, is sought after and respected as a competent and trusted advisor by the political echelons as well as the public and effectively supports the decision-making processes in innovation policy.


acatech provides expertise for political decision-making processes on the basis of a double mandate from the federal as well as the regional governments in Germany.


The Academy has established efficient structures for the science-based dialogue on technology-related future challenges. Experts from science, business and society develop sound concepts as input for the public and political debate. The topics range from raw material and resources to questions pertaining to the energy supply system, including technological developments and technology communication and the challenge of securing highly qualified specialists. As voice of the technical sciences, acatech is committed to creating the conditions for ideas to become innovations and innovations to be used to create prosperity, welfare and quality of life. The necessary innovative drive and capacity is largely the outcome of the fruitful exchange between science and industry, with experts from the scientific community and specialists from industrial research and development developing solutions in joint project groups.


The members of the Academy are outstanding scientists and scholars from the fields of engineering and the natural sciences, medicine as well as from the humanities and the social sciences. Admitted on the basis of their scientific achievements, they form the first pillar of the Academy. The second pillar is the Senate, whose members include distinguished figures from technology-orientated companies and associations along with representatives of the major scientific organisations.


The hallmark of acatech’s approach is independent, science-based consulting geared at public welfare.”
