More than 80 universities and research institutes represent national and international ceramic research in the DKG association.
The DKG stands up for the interests of science and research, which are strongly influenced by the interests of industry, at the political and association level. It is committed to the exchange and discussion of scientific findings. By organizing seminars and conferences, it supports the dissemination of innovations in the field of ceramic research.
The non-profit Research Association of the Deutsche Keramische Gesellschaft e.V. (FDKG), which is independent of the DKG but ideally associated with it, is significantly involved in joint industrial research in the field of ceramics.
