The Department of Materials Science of the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg is characterized by a long tradition in materials science and materials technology and is at the same time one of the internationally visible departments in Germany in the field of materials research.
The DGM Regional Forum is intended to serve as a suitable communication platform for questions of materials research in the region. This organizes regular meetings as well as the professional exchange of experience between all partners up to the interested public. Specifically, this includes a periodic series of lectures in which professors report on their industry-relevant research and work focuses as well as leading industry representatives on research and development topics of interest in the field of materials science.
Excursions for schoolchildren are intended to secure the next generation. The establishment of a university student laboratory is planned in order to convey the attractiveness of a materials engineering course in close cooperation with the grammar schools in the region in good time.
Through these measures, the DGM Regional Forum is also intended to inspire and strengthen the common solidarity of the actors with the DGM and thus also contribute to securing young talent for the DGM itself.
