Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing - BAM


The Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM) is a scientific and technical institute with responsibility to the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy (BMWi). As an interface between economy, politics and science, BAM is an important partner in the GERRI network. The federal authority has state-of-the-art testing facilities and strengthens our service divisions with its expertise in materials testing and development. 

BAM is Germany's competence centre for safety in technology and chemistry and it sets standards for security in the interdisciplinary fields: Energy, Infrastructure, Environment, Materials and Analytical Sciences. In future, the GERRI research network will work together with BAM to promote technology and knowledge transfer in the raw materials sector in order to strengthen the national economy and scientific community.
