The Information Technology Society in the VDE (ITG) promotes research, development and application of information technology in the data and communication technology, in production and communication systems, in environmental protection, medical and traffic technology.
Within the VDE organization, five technical societies together with standardization and product testing departments, are responsible for knowledge transfers and the exchange of information regarding technical trends. VDE experts work on the mapping of innovation strategies and foster an ongoing dialogue among researchers, developers and users.
Where are technology trends leading us? How can innovations benefit people? What will engineering studies look like in the future? The VDE works to ensure that technical innovations benefit people in their daily lives. It is a driving force behind securing the highest standards for engineering studies in the nation’s universities. VDE studies and analyses provide engineers, companies, politicians and the public with the technical information needed for shaping policies and making decisions.
