Natural Sciences

By working at the cutting edges of materials science, materials engineering and chemistry, the Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -prüfung (BAM) makes a crucial contribution to the technical safety of products, processes and to people’s life and work. For this purpose, we carry out research, perform tests and provide advice based on our technical expertise and many years of experience at the interfaces of science, technology, industry and politics.

As part of our legal and political tasks we identify, communicate and implement requirements in safety in technology and chemistry for tomorrow’s society. Innovations in research and development and the dissemination of our knowledge help promote the German industry.
