Excellent for the anniversary. DGM honours meritorious members

It is a worthy setting for a worthy celebration: At the DGM Day marking the 100th anniversary of the German Society for Materials Science (DGM) on 27 November 2019, Europe's largest technical and scientific MSE association will once again be honouring selected members who have rendered outstanding services to the society and the faculty at the AXICA Congress and Conference Centre nearby the Brandenburger Tor - in other words, exactly 100 years to the day after its foundation and not far from their own founding site.

This year the Heyn-Denkmünze, the highest award of the DGM, goes to Prof. Dr. Jürgen Rödel from the Technical University of Darmstadt. Dr.-Ing. Margarethe Hofmann-Amtenbrink, Dr.-Ing. Hilmar R. Müller and Dr. Peter Paul Schepp, Managing Director of DGM for many years, are appointed honorary members.
