In order to make everyone's life easier, more beautiful and more efficient in an ecological and sustainable way - and to enrich our society as a whole - research and industry must be able to answer pressing questions in the areas of mobility, energy supply, communication, safety, health and environmental protection in the coming years. New materials and innovative materials play a key role in these future fields, which are defined not least in the German government's High-Tech Strategy as a challenge for a competitive and job-creating economy.

"We want to pool the strengths of science, business, society and politics even more and use the resulting synergies for greater competitiveness and sustainable prosperity," states the mission statement of the Initiative for an Innovative Germany. And: "We want to continuously expand cooperation between universities, research institutions with companies and international partners and promote new collaborations." The DGM's MatWerk-special committees also contribute to this mission statement in a variety of ways in the area of high-tech megatrends.
