MatWerk Federal Association

The Bundesvereinigung Materialwissenschaft und Werkstofftechnik e.V. (BVMatWerk) (Federal Association of Materials Science and Engineering) wants to create contacts among science and industry, sponsors, politics and administration as well as increasing the public's awareness of this field and supporting the young talent to be found there. The DGM was significantly involved in its founding. At that time, the 25 organisations involved in the founding of the BVMatWerk, elected the then DGM Chairman Günter Gottstein as their chairperson.
