Technology and society are interdependent. Technological progress and thus scientific work cannot be realized without the trust of society and, at the same time, our lives are largely shaped by technological achievements. An open exchange is therefore of great importance.

Categories Science and Journalism

The UMSICHT Friends and Patrons Group is supporting this exchange with the UMSICHT Science Award. The prize is awarded to people who make scientific results from the fields of environmental, process, and energy technology – the core topics of Fraunhofer UMSICHT – available to society in an outstanding way.
