In the literature, there are several studies about R&D and innovation policies implemented in Germany at the federal level, which either provide an overview of the policy system, or develop evaluations of programmes. However, up-to-date and systematic information about the activities at the regional level are rare. The paper provides an overview of the innovation policies that have been recently implemented in Germany by the 16 Bundesländer. The study also provides updated information about programmes implemented at the federal level.
