The DGM hosted a Colloquium of Honour for Professor Wolfgang Kaysser. The very well received colloquium gave an overview on materials innovation in various applications serving mankind for a better life and wealth.
The Helmholtz Center Geesthacht´s mission “Science creates benefits – from basic research to application” also was the motto of this colloquium. The topics of the four sessions covered light weight structures for modern mobility and materials for improving the quality of life in the same way as the more theoretical, physical and chemical aspects of materials. The variety of topics showed the contemporary state in the development of Professor Kaysser’s broad spectrum of activities during his professional career.
