Young-DGM local groups and their spokespersons

Young-DGM local groups and their Spokespersons

The self-imposed goal of the Young-DGM local groups (yDGM) is to represent the interests of the young members within the DGM, to promote the dialogue between them and to offer a platform for the participation of the younger generation. The central meeting of the yDGM local groups is the yDGM annual meeting at the beginning of the DGM-Young Talent Forum, which takes place in the framework of MSE or the WerkstoffWoche (Materials Week) conference in every year. 
The Young-DGM annual meeting forms a "parliament" of the yDGM local groups and the active junior MatWerker in the DGM. In this “parliament” the interests of the yDGM local group members are discussed and transmitted via the federal spokesman of the yDGM local groups to the DGM Young Talent Committee.

The yDGM local groups support the statutable duties and responsibilities of the DGM, which include the promotion of talented junior staff. yDGM local groups can exist independently of DGM regional forums. Neighboring DGM regional forums and yDGM local groups should coordinate with each other.

Due to the foundation of yDGM local groups the DGM would like to increase their public perception – especially for the offspring of the materials science - as a competent contact at the different locations of the local groups. 
Through regional activities, the DGM should be even more visible and gain new members. The DGM Young Talent Committee junior coordinates the establishment, coordination and promotion of the jDGM local groups. This committee discusses and decides on planned junior activities, which were presented through the federal spokesman and his deputy. The General Manager and Board Member of DGM decided on the allocation of funds.

    Young-DGM Local Groups - yDGM are regional groups of students and PhDs of materials science and engineering. They are an important part in the promotion of young talent by the DGM – the German Materials Society. The founding of Young DGM Local Groups supports the statutory aims of the DGM, in which the promotion of talented young people is included.

    Each Young-DGM local group has a spokesperson. These speaker regularly advise in the committee of all the Young-DGM Spokespersons on topics relevant to MatWerk junior staff and exchange views with the federal spokesperson for all local groups.

    All speakers of the Young-DGM local groups can be reached together via the email address jDGM-Sprecher@dgm.de.

    • Regular meetings to exchange experiences of the yDGM members on site, also with external participants. The aim is to build a network among students and doctoral candidates in materials science and materials technology for the two-way exchange of ideas and experience.
    • Through their work, the yDGM local groups should lead the students and PhDs of the field of materials science and engineering to the activities relevant to this target group as a mediator of the DGM and win them permanently for active participation in the DGM.
    • The yDGM local groups maintain contacts to contact persons in schools, colleges, student councils and other junior organizations in the neighboring disciplines.
    • They participate in discussions concerning the interests of the young members of the DGM (e.g. in the annual yDGM meeting, at the DGM Young Talent Forum and at the DGM-Tag).
    • The members of the yDGM local groups are appealed to get involved in the working groups of the DGM Young Talent Committee.
    • All members of the yDGM local groups are obliged to participate more intensively in the preparation and implementation of the DGM Young Talent Forum and the annual meeting of the yDGM local groups. They promote the active participation of students and PhDs of the field of materials science and engineering in and during these events. At their yDGM annual meeting, the yDGM local groups should discuss the concerns of all the local groups. Out of these discussions the yDGM local groups should word suggestionen for enhancements of the DGM offspring activities. The recommendations are addressed to the DGM Young Talent Committee. The speaker of the DGM Young Talent Committee and the responsible representatives of the DGM office will attend at both meetings.
    • In preparation of the annual yDGM meeting, each yDGM local group will present an informal report on its activities over the past year. This report must be sent to the DGM specialist consultant for the support of young talent by e-mail. This DGM specialist consultant will make the reports accessible to all members of the DGM Young Talent Committee. The spokesman of each yDGM local group is responsible for the submission.
    • For DGMs budget planning, each yDGM local group should present an overview of the events scheduled for the coming year until the beginning of November.
