    Digitalisation is entering the German economy, causing the need for change – whether or not companies and government want that. The essential matters of this trend are: How sustainable is Germany's current economic success and what supports tomorrow's growth? The "Congress for Innovative Future Policy - Germany's Digital Race to Catch up?", jointly hosted in the Baden-Württemberg State Representation in Berlin at the 19 February 2016 by the Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW) and SAP Germany SE, was dedicated to that issue and came up with practical solutions.

    The German government’s main tactic to incentivise companies to invest in innovation is to directly fund research projects. However, a number of recent studies have shown that this method of encouraging innovation does not go far enough. Particularly in small and medium-sized enterprises, there has been an increasingly steep decline in the level of innovation activity in recent years. This begs the question of whether it is time to focus greater efforts on tax incentives for research and development (R&D). This issue served as the focus of a workshop which took place on 21 January 2016 at the Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW) with the cooperation of the University of Mannheim and the consulting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC).
