Communicating the knowledge gained by Leibniz institutions to industry, policymakers and society is a key aspect of the Leibniz Association’s strategic objectives. Leibniz institutions respond to society’s information needs and to topical questions. By communicating research findings to non-academic target groups, they play a significant role in developing society’s capacity to reflect and innovate. Questions generated by society are also integrated into research projects at the Leibniz Institutes.
