Germany is no stranger to the STEM skills gap: the country has faced acute shortages of available workers in industries including IT and healthcare. According to one finding from the Cologne Institute of Economic Research, there were over 500,000 vacant STEM roles in Germany at the end of 2018.

Because of these challenges, the German government has been eager to reduce bureaucratic hurdles for foreign nationals seeking employment in the country. These immigration-friendly policies make Germany a top destination for talent.
