The national and international network of the BAW is a major basis for continuously enhanc-ing our specialist scientific skills. Thus, the BAW collaborates intensively with national and international institutions, especially in the areas of research and development. Furthermore we are active in numerous national and international standardisation bodies and technical/scientific associations.

The informal setting up of global networks of a multitude of experts is a valuable outcome of this intensive exchange of experience and a consistent source of expert discussions and information.
