Acatech - the NATIONAL ACADEMY OF SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING - represents the interests of the German scientific and technological communities, at home and abroad. It is autonomous, independent and a non-profit organisation. As a working academy, acatech supports policy-makers and society, providing qualified technical evaluations and forward looking recommendations. Moreover, acatech is determined to support knowledge transfer between science and industry, and encourage the next generation of engineers.
Therefore, it is a great honor on behalf of the ISCT to congratulate Prof. Bernd Pichler for this election.
