Partners from industry and research
The Institut für Eisenhüttenkunde maintains numerous national and international contacts with partners from research and industry.
Steel Institute VDEh
The aim of the Stahlinstitut VDEh is the promotion of technical-scientific and technical-economic cooperation in the development of steel and steel technology. The basis of the activity of the steel institute VDEh is the exchange of experience in technical and scientific committees. The VDEh has a wide network with national as well as international institutions. The IEHK is involved in various specialist committees of the VDEh and is involved in the continuing education activities of the Stahl-Akademie.
Deutsche Gesellschaft für Materialkunde e.V. DGM
The DGM is a technical-scientific society in the field of materials science and materials engineering. Its aim is to further develop the field of activities in material in terms of content, structure and personnel. The IEHK, is involved in specialist committees and in further education.
German Association for Materials Research And-test e.V. DVM
The DVM promotes knowledge transfer in the fields of structural integrity, material research as well as material and component testing. The technical-scientific task and the goal of the association is to understand components. Under the guiding principle of structural integrity, various topics are grouped into a flexible DVM network. The IEHK is involved in various working groups.
Center Metallic constructions e.V. zmb
The research tasks and the expectation of industrial partners increasingly require an interdisciplinary cooperation across the specialist areas. For this reason, the Institute for Metal Forming (IBF), Institute for Automotive Engineering (IKA), Institute for Welding and Joining (ISF), Institute for Steel and Light Metal Construction (STB), the Surface Engineering Institute (IOT), and the Steel Institute (IEHK) have been set up in the non-profit center for Metallische Bauweisen (zmb).This leads to a combination of specialist competencies in different areas and thus offers the possibility to present close-linked process chains, from material selection to the finished component.
Scientific Working Group Material Technology WAW
The WAW is the association of 35 university professors of materials engineering.
The purpose is the scientific and professional promotion of materials technology, with a focus on metals, ceramics and composites.
