Overview

Members of the acatech topic networks join forces with external experts to form interdisciplinary project groups. Every project is linked to at least one topical network.

 

Communicating Technology

Communicating Technology

This topic network looks into how communication works between the science and technology community on one side and media representatives and the public on the other side. The advent of social media is changing this relation rapidly. Projects developed aim at developing new communication formats, which allow for an increased degree of participation and information.

Education

Education

acatech supports education and training in mathematics, informatics, natural sciences, and technology. MINT education is indispensable for understanding the increasing complexity of our society. The academy puts a special focus on motivating children and students for MINT education and training. Other projects are geared towards lifelong learning.

Energy, Resources and Sustainability

Energy, Resources and Sustainability

The energy transition poses new challenges for society, industry and the scientific community in Germany. In the coming years, new technologies will be required in order to further develop energy generation from renewable sources and to enhance the potential of energy storage. Hence, the demand for qualified specialists will continue to increase as new business models are established. Changes also ensue in the use of resources, particularly with view to certain materials like mineral and metallic raw materials. The use of water, soil and air is increasingly subjected to sustainability requirements.
