  • Editorial
    The key societal importance of the research university, as shaped by the famous education reformer Wilhelm von Humboldt at the start of the 19th century, can hardly be overstated. Equally important, however, is the evolution of this model toward the technical research university. These remarkable institutions are a German success story with international impact. A technical research university reaches beyond the academic to enable engineers and scientists to transform their ideas into useful, economically feasible products and innovative processes; even into new realities. As such, they have helped propel Germany to the ranks of the world’s technology leaders. This indeed is what the world knows as “German Engineering”.
