DECHEMA Gesellschaft für Chemische Technik und Biotechnologie e.V. (Society for Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology) brings 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. DECHEMA has over 5,800 members – individuals, institutions and companies. The Biotechnology Section and ProcessNet, the joint platform for chemical engineering, are the forums where scientists, engineers, students, companies and institutions meet for knowledge exchange and discussion.
In addition, we administer funding programmes as well as national and European research clusters.
As a member of AiF we organize industrial cooperative research projects. Together with DECHEMA Ausstellungs-GmbH we are the organizers of ACHEMA, the world forum for the process industry.
We cooperate closely with the DECHEMA-Forschungsinstitut, which is dedicated to research for sustainable technologies in biotechnology, materials science and chemical engineering.
