This week the kick-off meeting of the Council for Technological Sovereignty founded by the German Federal Ministry of Research took place. Eleven experts from science, business, and society have got the assignment to in the coming months develop recommendations for the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) to strengthen the technological sovereignty of Germany and the European Union in key areas of technology. Anja Karliczek, Federal Minister for Education and Research, explains in the following way:
