Who we are ...

VDMA Future Business has been founded by the VDMA Executive Management in 2015 as a Competence Center. Together with our members and research organisations we aim at recognizing and coping with trends and disruptions: scouting, foresight, roadmapping and value-adding networks will be provided as a service . The initial impetus is given with a joint project with the Fraunhofer Institute ISI. That is our contribution to secure the future for our industry and the VDMA itself.
