German Innovations

From Aspirin to the Z3, the first programmable calculator and forerunner of present-day computers, Germany is a land of ideas, inventions, and innovations. Ever since Johannes Gutenberg invented the printing press in 1440, the successful history of “Made in Germany” unfalteringly continues. For centuries, German innovations have significantly shaped today’s world and promoted scientific, cultural, and economic progress in a myriad of ways.
A trademark for know-how and originality, Germany has always shared a top spot among Europe’s innovation leaders; and according to the 2016 European Innovation Scoreboard, "Germany continues to be a leader in innovation."
The innovations presented on this page were selected for E-NNOVATION GERMANY, the GCRI’s newsletter. If you have a suggestion for a “German Innovation of the Month,” please write to .
