About Us


about

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.
