The impact of R&D on the development of manufacturing industry in East Germany and the impact of technology open programmes for the promotion of industry research

The project analyses the effects of the German Federal Ministry of Economics' technology open programmes for small and medium-sized companies on the development of the East German manufacturing industry between 2000 and 2008 under consideration of corresponding measures by other federal ministries and the East German Länder. On this basis, the project aims to provide practical recommendations for future innovation policy.
