Shared Challenges, Shares Successes (PDF)
The purpose for the environmental technology annexes is to provide a framework for the exchange of data on environmental research and technologies, address common environmental challenges, and produce innovative technology solutions for the benefit of both countries. Representatives to the DEA focus their efforts on resolving high-priority environmental needs and addressing current requirements by matching needs, expertise and resources where maximum benefit can be obtained. At regularly scheduled meetings, U.S. and German colleagues meet to share information, to evaluate the successes and lessons learned from the environmental technologies currently being demonstrated, and to consider new and innovative technologies for future demonstration projects. This provides the flexibility to adapt their efforts to focus on high-priority environmental needs and requirements as they change.
