On behalf of our Société Française de Métallurgie et Matériaux (SF2M),
I would like to congratulate DGM on its 100th Anniversary. We are very happy to celebrate this huge event with DGM. This is a great opportunity for our organizations to emphasize our cooperation and to prepare the future of our industries and academia. We shall further develop these collaborations and work in particular in the frame of the Federation of European Materials Societies (FEMS) that our societies together with IOM3 have founded more than 30 years ago.
Promotion of materials science and engineering is of utmost importance to prepare the next generation of scientists and engineers, to ensure that knowledge and expertise are passed from one generation to another. This is a challenge for the next 100 years, so we wish DGM a fantastic and successful year of celebrations!
Eric Le Bourhis
Präsident of SF2M
