Bavaria's successes in research and technology are based on broadly promoting key technologies.
In its research, technology and innovation strategy, the Bavarian State Government has defined the following fields of application and technology as priorities for Bavaria over the long term:
- Information and communication technologies
- Life sciences
- New materials
These fields of application and technology have been the focal points of Bavarian technology and innovation policy for several years now, e.g. the Bavarian Cluster Initiative.
