Biotechnology in germany_-_presentation_final Biotechnology in germany_-_presentation_final Presentation Transcript

  • Biotechnology in Germany Multinational Business Management Lucie Avenel – Marie-Claire Burgat – Shiho Kamei - Wilson Kao Celia Lao – Alain Truche – Adrian Tsai – Jeff Shusterich
  • Macroeconomic environment of Germany
  • Political structure  Parliamentary democratic federal republic: Federal Republic of Germany.  Federal President of Germany: Joachim Gauck.  Chancellor: Angela Merkel.  Major political Parties: Coalition of the Christian Democratic Union (CDU), the Christian Social Union (CSU); and the Free Democratic Party (FDP).  Political Attacks on Foreign Companies and Industries. Ex: Boeing and Airbus. View slide
  • Legal System  Constitution: Basic Law for 16 states.  Five codes at the core system, civil, civil procedure, commercial, criminal, and criminal procedure.  As a part of the European Union, Germany must obey all the laws set in place by that organization. View slide
  • Political and legal structure The politic and legal environment basically is riskless. The low grades for Labor Flexibility is due to the employment and labor laws are strongly employee based, and commonly referred to as “employee protection law”
  • Germany’s economic and financial variables  The GDP of 2012 is 0,6%, but Germany remains the richest country of Europe and the 4th richest of the world in terms of GDP (PPP)  The most dynamic country as far as finance in concerned: the European Central Bank is in Frankfurt  Prices level Sources: , The Economics magazine
  • Germany’s economic and financial variables  During the last 10 years the ratio between wages in Germany and China countries went from 10–1 to 4-1, 2 reasons:  Chinese workers wages are growing  German government decided to decrease the minimum wage allowed because of the increase of unemployment rate  And transportation costs are low if you want to enter the European market because Germany is geographically in the center of European Union Global Times
  • • Situation: Cross-boarder with 9 countries • Distribution: Hambourg, Berlin, Munich, cities along the Ruhr Social and cultural situation
  • Population  81 millions inhabitants - 14th most populous country in the globe  The fertility rate of 1.4 children per mother ⇒ estimated decline of population by about 4 million Growing aging population ⇒ shortage of skilled workers  91% German - Majority of immigrants are from Turkey - Italians, Greeks and the Serbs  Middle class society
  • People characteristics  One of the highest level of education - Number of youths entering universities has more than tripled since 1950 - Trade and technical schools are among the world's best  Attitudes - Hard workers - Planning - Formality in works - Work and personal lives are rigidly divided  Culture Dimensions - Low Context Communication - High Power Distance - Individualism - High Uncertainty Avoidance - Achievement  Open to new technologies and product
  • Technology  HIGH INVESTMENT RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT: • Increase its investment in research and development: In 2010, public and private sectors spent a record 70 billion euros, amounting to 2.82 percent of GDP • Employ 506 000 persons in R&D and 299 000 scientists & scholars • Various forms of research locations: universities, companies and institutions run by federal or state authorities. • Several research areas: Environment and Energy / Health and Safety / Interdisciplinary Technologies / Communication and Mobility / Future and Society • Technology centers: Potsdam, Berlin, Franckfurt, Dusseldorf
  • Technology (cont.) DENSE, MODERN AND POLYCENTRIC TRANSPORT NETWORK  Due to its central position in Europe  Largest German airports are Frankfurt Airport and Munich Airport. “MADE IN GERMANY”  “Germany is the most inventive country in terms of patents after the United States and Japan” based on the OECD’s 2009 Science, Technology and Industry Scoreboard  German innovations have shaped today’s world and promoted progress: exemples… GREEN TECHNOLOGIES  Leadership position in the field of sustainable production technologies.  "Green Production Technologies" campaign
  • Porter’s Diamond Model: Biotechnology in Germany
  • What is Biotechnology ? Biotechnology “The application of science and technology to living organisms, as well as parts, products and models thereof, to alter living or non-living materials for the production of knowledge, goods and services.” Green Biotechnology: Agriculture • Plant and food Red Biotechnology: Medicine • Medical and pharmaceutical for humans and animals White Biotechnology: Industry • Industrial manufacture with biotechnical procedures, environmental protection productive processes
