German Chancellor Angela Merkel urged Germany’s youth to ‘resourceful and curious,’ at her final award ceremony for the youth research competition ‘Jugend Forscht’ in Berlin on Monday.
"We all need talent in our country. We need them to fight climate change, to drive technological transformations and digital revolutions. And last but not least, we need them for progress in the health sector." Merkel said calling on the youth of Germany to help innovate.
Using the example of the German made BioNTech vaccine Merkel stated, "the corona pandemic in particular has shown how important science and research are for all of us. The fact that effective vaccines could be developed in a relatively short period of time is an achievement that cannot be valued highly enough."
Merkel’s near 16 years as chancellor of Germany is set to come to a close soon with the approaching German federal elections on Sunday, September 26.

SOT, Angela Merkel, German Chancellor (German): "Regardless of the subject area we are looking at, there are far more than enough reasons why the Federal Government has made education, science and research one of its priorities. So we, the state and the economy together, have repeatedly managed in recent years to invest at least three percent of the gross domestic product in research and development. In 2019 it was 3.2 percent. That might not sound like too much, but that’s almost 110 billion euros. This means that Germany ranks among the top group of highly innovative countries worldwide. Of course we want it to stay that way. That is why we have set ourselves an even more ambitious target of 3.5 percent."

SOT, Angela Merkel, German Chancellor (German): "Of course, it is also very important that around 40 percent of the registrations come from girls. That is still not half, but the positive long-term trend in the number of participants gives us hope. We all need talent in our country. We need them to fight climate change, to drive technological transformations and digital revolutions. And last but not least, we need them for progress in the health sector."

SOT, Angela Merkel, German Chancellor (German): "The corona pandemic in particular has shown how important science and research are for all of us. The fact that effective vaccines could be developed in a relatively short period of time is an achievement that cannot be valued highly enough."

SOT, Angela Merkel, German Chancellor (German): "My request: keep everyone so resourceful and curious. Because that not only pays off with “Jugend Forscht”, but certainly also later in your job and Germany needs you."
