Named af­ter the Greek god­dess of pru­dence and wise coun­sel, the Pi­lot Pro­ject Metis works on to­day’s and to­mor­row’s strate­gi­cal­ly re­le­vant ques­tions of in­ter­na­tion­al po­li­tics.
At home at Bun­des­wehr Uni­ver­si­ty Mu­nich, Me­tis in­ter­links aca­de­mic in­quiry and po­li­cy prac­tice. It com­bin­es con­tin­u­ous and sci­en­tif­i­cal­ly ri­go­rous re­search with pro­blem-ori­ent­ed, in­ter­dis­ci­pli­nary coun­sel to the Po­li­cy De­part­ment at the Fed­er­al Min­is­try of De­fence.

Pro­ject Me­tis aims at strength­en­ing stra­te­gic thought in Ger­man na­tion­al se­cu­ri­ty po­li­cy and con­tri­bu­ting to the Ger­man na­tion­al se­cur­ity dis­course at large.
The Me­tis team pro­duc­es periodical stud­ies on stra­te­gi­cal­ly re­le­vant longer-term ques­tions of Ger­ma­ny’s fu­ture se­cur­ity po­li­cy, draws up short-term an­al­yses with a fo­cus on cur­rent events, or­gan­izes and hosts back­ground dis­cus­sions and of­fers snap-ex­per­tise avail­able at short no­tice. Ad­di­tion­al­ly, it is part and at the same time co-or­gan­iz­er and co-host of the „Stra­te­gy and Fore­sight Net­work” re­gul­ar­ly con­vened at the Ger­man Fe­de­ral Min­istry of De­fence in Ber­lin.

Strategy and Foresight Network


The Strat­e­gy and Fore­sight Net­work is joint­ly or­ga­nized by the Fed­er­al Min­istry of De­fence’s Pol­i­cy De­part­ment and Me­tis.

It is com­posed of rep­re­sen­ta­tives of gov­ern­ment, the sci­en­tif­ic com­mu­ni­ty, the busi­ness sec­tor, and civ­il so­ci­ety.

The Net­work is meet­ing in Ber­lin on a reg­u­lar ba­sis to dis­cuss strate­gic is­sues re­le­vant to Ger­man se­cu­ri­ty pol­i­cy.
