German Chancellor Angela Merkel meets President of Acatech Henning Kagermann at the CeBIT in Hannover. Acatech is the National Academy of Science and Engineering in Germany and is one of our linked sister Academies throughout the world. Acatech is regularly called on by head of Government to support policy formation through research, reports and expert advice. In similar vein the Irish Academy is building links with the Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and his Government Departments to support economic, social and technological development.
