The Association of German Chambers of Industry and Commerce (DIHK) is the umbrella organization of the 80 regional Chambers of Commerce and Industry (IHK) in Germany. The DIHK speaks for millions of entrepreneurs and represents their interests in national and European politics, inter alia in the field of research and innovation.

Some 140 innovation and technology advisors at the IHKs offer tangible support to companies seeking innovative solutions in a regional, national or international context. In so doing, they operate in fields of activity, such as the protection of intellectual property rights or the initiation of international contacts with scientific organizations and business. These advisors collaborate closely with the German Chambers of Commerce (AHK), which have 130 locations in 90 countries worldwide. The AHK represents a unique, locally-experienced and globally-active service network, which supports companies in their international business activities with respect to, e.g. market opportunities, skilled personnel or information on regional research capacities.
