With more than 150.000 members, the largest association of engineers in Germany pools experts for interdisciplinary dialogue and propagates knowledge of current developments in science and research, economy, society and policy.
As the Competence Centre for resource efficiency, the VDI ZRE works at the interface between business and science and pools know-how from theory and practice. The VDI ZRE was launched in 2009 as a cooperative project of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection and the VDI.
