The topic network Materials Science and Engineering (MatWerk) discusses various aspects of research, education, and public perceptions in this field, with a view to identifying gaps in the chain leading from the development of a material to its application in products. What challenges exist in this area and how can we overcome them?
In summer 2009, this topic network merged with the Materials Innovation Committee, launched in 2005 by E. Schulz (former Chairman of the Executive Board at ThyssenKrupp AG) as part of the "Partners for Innovation" initiative of Federal Chancellor G. Schröder. The merger enabled the topic network and Innovation Committee to pool their resources in order to establish new projects in this field, providing policymakers with an independent, expert point of contact.
