Association for the promotion of scientific-technical cooperation in the raw materials sector


About us

Mode of operation and objectives

WTZ e.V. is the initiator of national and international dialog formats for technical and scientific experts and offers the participants of its events a well-founded exchange platform. It organizes events in the form of round tables, workshops and conferences dedicated to the possible design and implementation of climate-friendly and sustainable systems in the energy and raw materials industry. In doing so, it cooperates with various scientific institutions on a national and international level, but also incorporates the practical experience of stakeholders from industry.

Within the events, current technology developments and hurdles in their establishment are discussed. In addition, approaches for the further development of technology maturity levels are elicited, as well as the potentials of an international knowledge transfer and cooperative points of contact. Together, relevant research needs are defined, hurdles are identified, and emerging issues are addressed at an early stage. The findings are made available to the public in the form of scientific publications.
