Physikkonkret is an information sheet which contains facts on current scientific and science policy topics in a compact and generally understandable form. With Physikkonkret, the DPG would like to contribute specifically to the public discussion on the situation of the natural sciences and physics in Germany and offer its advice on central questions of our DPG members and decision-makers in politics, business and industry. Thus, the DPG fulfils its responsibility as the world's largest and independent physics society and meets the current scientific and political challenges.
