Daidalos: Discover the world of ideas!

At www.daidalos.blog we present to you the ideas that are driving society forward today – including everything from technical marvels to practical everyday inventions. And we also present the clever minds behind these ideas: innovative German companies and their inventors.

To this day, we know that such innovations create value and are a driving force of our society. We would like to make this valuable influence of innovations known to a broad public and thus strengthen the image of inventors in Germany (unfortunately, Daidalos is currently only available in German).
