Our products form the basis for the successful further development of our society's quality of life and enable further growth - especially in Germany as a business location. Our primary goal is therefore to sustainably improve the innovative strength and international competitiveness of our member companies. To strengthen the framework conditions for long-term growth, prosperity and employment, we seek close cooperation with our partners in the value chain, within national and international research networks and with political decision-makers. Our activities aim to increase the value of our industry and are at the same time shaped by social and environmental responsibility.
