Press dialogue at Hannover Messe

VDE, BSKI, GreenTEC Campus and MIT Boston present solutions for sustainable supply security for industry and society. The West is facing a paradigm shift in the global economy and security policy: Corona and now the war in Ukraine show our dependencies with all clarity.

Germany and Europe are particularly affected: Supply chains are breaking down, energy and raw material supplies for industry and society are on the brink, food shortages are hitting the poorest of the poor in particular. At the same time, organized crime in virtual space is on the rise. The security of energy supplies, critical infrastructures, the economy and thus also the prosperity of our society are at stake. There is no time for demands and discussions now. Solutions that can be implemented in the short term are needed for sustainable, independent energy and raw material supplies, for technological sovereignty and for Europe's resistance to disruption.
