In a three-year research project that started in October 2020, the departmental research institutes of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) are having their pasts during the national socialist (Nazi) period and the post-war era examined. PTB as well as the BAM Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing and the Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources (BGR) date back to earlier institutions which were founded in the 19th century and also existed during national socialist times.
