Goals and tasks of the DKG

Only the constant exchange of ideas between all creative forces from practice, science and teaching and the search for common solutions enable an industrial sector to use all opportunities of technical and scientific development and to assert itself in global competition. The DKG thus focuses its association's goals on the promotion of all ceramics from a technical, scientific and artistic point of view. In the more than 100 years of their existence, the DKG members have succeeded in solving current material and production technology issues in ceramics in continuous joint work between industry, science and teaching.

With this, the society contributes to the supply of reliable working bases, from which individual business activities can also arise. In the material-technical, highly organized German association system, the DKG focuses solely on the area of ceramics in order to fulfill the following functions and tasks for all members:

  • ceramic network, discussion board and point of contact for industry, science and teaching
  • planning, coordination and implementation of training and further education measures, seminars, symposia and congresses as well as publication of the accompanying technical literature for the ceramic industry and its supplier industries and all related economic sectors
  • funding body of research and development in the field of ceramics (via theFDKGe.V.)
  • documentation and publication of scientific results, distribution of technical and practical knowledge to all members
  • further development and application of new ceramic materials and products in Germany and abroad
  • promotion of the ceramic art
