DECHEMA is the expert network for chemical engineering and biotechnology in Germany. As a non-profit professional society we represent these fields in science, industry, politics and the general public. DECHEMA promotes scientific and technical exchange among experts from different disciplines, organisations and generations. We consolidate the know-how of over 5,800 individual and sustaining members, bringing together experts from a wide range of disciplines, institutions and generations to stimulate scientific exchange in chemical engineering, process engineering and biotechnology. We identify and evaluate emerging technological trends and facilitate the transfer of research results into industrial applications.
DECHEMA is the hub of an interdisciplinary network of topic-oriented committees, organizing events and professional development courses for all who are interested in a specialized subject area. In addition, we administer funding programmes as well as national and European research clusters. Why is DECHEMA the right place for the ISC3 Innovation Hub? Because DECHEMA has been founded 90 years ago with the mission to connect science and industry, foster the interdisciplinary dialogue and bring research results into applications. DECHEMA has a large national and international network – cross-industry, cross-discipline, open and trustful. DECHEMA’s activities derive from a deep-set expertise in chemical engineering and biotechnology and extend to areas as diverse as chemistry, bioeconomy, pharma, medical technology, resources, energy, and water. And it is certainly no coincidence if these fields seem familiar – they are closely related to the concept and implementation of sustainable chemistry.
