The Federal Republic of Germany's Response to the Need for Talent in Mathematics, Science and Technology.
Blanke, Ernst August
This conference presentation analyzes the present and anticipated future employment situation for mathematicians, scientists, and engineers in the Federal Republic of Germany. On the whole, it is determined that supply and demand for mathematicians, scientists, and engineers will be generally balanced, though there may be imbalances in individual occupational sectors or local regions. In order to maintain its high standard of living and compete successfully in the world market, West Germany has developed measures to encourage outstanding achievements of its highly talented citizens. These measures include federal talent competitions, school working groups, summer courses, inservice training for teachers, direct contact with university professors, establishment of graduate colleges, and financial aid and academic guidance from foundations. Government-sponsored research focuses on development of a model to identify outstanding talent, determining reasons for the low proportion of women in these fields, and examining the role of leisure time in developing talent.
