Annual Report 2021
The future rarely unfolds as expected. It is now over two years since the coronavirus pandemic transformed our lives in a way nobody had foreseen. And now we find ourselves looking back on 2021 through the lens of Putin’s invasion of Ukraine, another development that few of us saw coming. Nevertheless, we must keep working for a better future for people and the environment, and this is exactly what acatech and the many experts who voluntarily contribute to our work are doing. We are working to strengthen innovation in Germany and Europe and to ensure that new technologies enable sustainable growth while remaining under our own control. Maintaining sovereignty over technological change is a crucial challenge for government, science, industry and each and every one of us.
