Scientists from abroad bring international Know-How

In 2014, nearly 50,000 international scientists were working in German research institutions. The good news is that recently, there have been more researchers in STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and mathematics). Between 2010 and 2014, the number of scientists doing research in mathematics, science and engineering subjects rose from 17,509 to 25,360. As a highly specialised centre of industry, Germany needs their know-how to develop innovative strength and international competitiveness.
