Welcome to the Land of Ideas!

Ideas are our most valuable resource, guaranteeing a future worth living. We look for good ideas and the people behind them. We connect, honour and visualize what we find. This is how we promote Germany at home and abroad.

The people in our network stand for inspiration, openness, and bold action. They are our ambassadors for a sustainable, liberal-minded Germany. Our goal is to bring creative minds together and honour their commitment to our future. We support an exchange of ideas with other countries to foster international dialogue.

Together with partners from business, politics, science, and society, we realise ideas competitions, publications, exhibitions, delegation trips, and virtual platforms. Through encounters and networking, we create a climate that turns ideas into innovations.

Germany – Land of Ideas was founded in 2006 by the German Federal Government and German business and industry.
