Free State of Saxony

The primary research and innovation policy objective of Saxony’s state government is to foster a prospering science, research and transfer landscape. Saxony is striving to increase the efficiency of research through networking, flexibility and autonomy. Thus, the focus of Saxony’s research policy is on promoting excellence in science and strategically improving the performance of research institutions.

The broad networking of universities and research institutions with each other at European and international level and with industry and society is an important prerequisite for this. It is only in this way that they can develop their profile and assert themselves in global competition.

Research in the Free State of Saxony covers the entire spectrum from basic research to applied research.
