Fostering Innovation. Unlocking Potential.

The Reinhard Mohn Prize 2020 project is looking worldwide for exemplary initiatives, mechanisms and strategies to help promote innovation in Germany and Europe. On the one hand, the goal is to help Germany remain technologically – and thus economically – competitive. On the other, it is to shape our economic development so that it remains humane and democratic, and offers equal opportunities to all. We start from the premise that two paradigms – “strengthening innovation and technological competitiveness” and “solving societal problems through innovation” – can be combined in mutual reinforcement.
