Progress needs innovations that lead away from supposedly predetermined paths. In turn, innovations require both boldness and confidence in the technology concerned. To find solutions for the challenges of our time, we have to work together in networks and interact more intensively – extending our horizons. Without such cooperation, there can be no adequate and modern answers to these challenges in our ever more complex world. So we are enhancing our innovative strength by forming better networks in order to promote new technologies. This is the Advanced Services approach.
