Establishment of the “DGM Regional Forum” Erlangen
The German Materials Society (DGM) approved, in the framework of its Annual General Assembly on 22nd September 2018, the establishment of the DGM Regional Forum Erlangen following an initiative of the FAU Department of Materials Science and Engineering.
Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini (Chair of the WW Department), Prof. Mathias Goeken and Prof. Carolin Koerner (pictured) are the founding members of the Forum, which will offer a communication platform with main goal to connect and facilitate the exchange between the different sectors involved in “materials science and engineering” in the Erlangen and Northern Bavaria region, with strong emphasis in developing networks between industry, universities and other research institutions involved in materials research.
The Regional Forum Erlangen also intends to inspire and strengthen the interactions of the different regional actors with the DGM. The Forum will start its activities officially in 2019.
