The immediate document is an international application and it is not "valid", it is merely an application. This international application has spawned two "real" applications:

DE102011013224 - In Germany, abandoned on 2015/10/01

EP2683373 - In the EPO, still being actively examined: https://register.epo.org/application?number=EP12708816&lng=en&tab=doclist
