acatech -  the National Academy of Science and Engineering in Germany has a mandate from the Federal Government and the Länder to contribute expert knowledge to the policymaking process. It provides effective structures for the science-based discussion of strategic technology issues. Experts from science, industry and civil society develop evidence-based proposals as input for the public and policy debate. The themes covered include technology policy issues relating to climate and environmental protection, Germany's technological and digital sovereignty, sustainable mobility, health care and the life sciences as well as securing the supply of qualified specialists and technology communication. acatech represents Germany’s technological sciences at the European umbrella organisation Euro-CASE and its global counterpart CAETS.
Euro-CASE is one of the five partner Academy Networks in the EU-project SAPEA ('Science Advice for Policy by European Academies') which is funded by Horizon Europe and coordinated by acatech. SAPEA is part of the European Commission’s Scientific Advice Mechanism, which provides independent, interdisciplinary, and evidence-based scientific advice on policy issues to the European Commission.
In addition, acatech organises the European Sounding Board on Innovation, an independent advisory vehicle stimulating further development of strategic aspects of the European Innovation Agenda and discussions of emerging dossiers with high-level representatives from European academia and industry.
