Framework Programme Materials Innovations for Industry and Society (WING)

a programme of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF)

New materials are the motor of new production processes and products. They also substantially contribute to reducing production costs. Indeed, the costs for materials constitute around 50 % of production costs in the processing industry. Savings achieved through the efficient use of raw materials can therefore bring about a considerable competitive advantage.

With its Framework Programme Materials Innovations for Industry and Society (WING), launched in early 2004, BMBF intends to provide new impetus for materials technologies that have an interdisciplinary approach. Both classic materials development and materials-oriented chemical technologies and nanotechnological materials concepts will contribute their synergy effects to the programme and provide for a new boost in industrial product development
