In stormy times, Europe has to move on - together! To share knowledge, to act in unison, to secure peace: there are many good reasons to support the European Union. That's why VDMA has started the online-initiative #europeworks; to send a strong pro-European signal and to face off the threats of nationalism and populism. The topics "Euro" and "know-how" have now been added under: www.europeworks.com
How will the world of mechanical engineering look in 2030 with respect to what today are considered to be “future materials”? Which different scenarios can be foreseen and what would their consequences be for the industry? Answers are given in the new VDMA report “Future Materials 2030” – a VDMAimpulse coverage.
