The global economic structure has changed significantly, especially in the innovation potential of important economies of the world. China belongs to the group of the most important newcomers among the innovative nations, not only due to its size, but also because of its very marked ambitions to speed up its modernization via imitations and innovations. Germany and China are two important players in the global innovation system. While Germany is highly industrialized and innovation-oriented, China is quickly industrializing and catching up. With the goal of becoming an indigenous innovation nation, China has been implementing its medium-and-long term plans for education and talent. What are the lessons learned from the German and Chinese national innovation systems?
