Immigration and STEM: Qualified immigration from India showing signs of success

Oliver Koppel and Axel Plünnecke

No 15.2017e, IW-Kurzberichte from Institut der deutschen Wirtschaft (IW) / German Economic Institute

Abstract: In recent years, qualified immigration has started to play a significant role for the German labour market, especially for securing skilled STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) employment. Efforts made to attract STEM immigrants from India are starting to show signs of success - both the number of employees in academic STEM jobs and the number of students in STEM disciplines have increased significantly in recent times. From a strategic viewpoint, this immigration from demographically strong non-European countries is particularly important for the future.
