A politically inspired partnership between the German and French governments to develop advanced multimedia search technologies, Quaero, appears to be falling apart over strategic and cultural differences.

Earlier this week, Hartmut Schauerte, state secretary in the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology, told an auditorium full of high-ranking political officials and chief executives that the government would end its involvement in the Quaero consortium. It will instead focus on a national programme, called Theseus, to develop search technologies for next-generation internet.
