GERRI becomes association

With the founding of an association, the German Resource Research Institute is taking the next step to further promote the bundling of raw material expertise from science and industry for the German economy.

The promotion of science and research in the field of raw materials is one of the most important goals of the association. "We represent the interests of German resource research in Germany and abroad and manage strategic research cooperation. By networking actors and pooling expertise, we are a decisive point of contact for raw materials, which become an increasingly important topic for industry and society alike," explains Prof. Dr. Dr. Markus Reuter, Director of the Helmholtz Institute for Resource Technology (HIF) at the HZDR and First Chairman of the association. Prof. Daniel Goldmann, head of the Institute for Processing, Landfill Technology and Geomechanics at Clausthal University of Technology, was elected second chairman.
