Planning for the future. DGM Management Board meets in Berlin

The German Materials Society (DGM) is to position itself even more strongly internationally than before. Europe's largest scientific and technical MatWerk (MSE) society should also become more visible in the social media. And although the DGM, with its 100-year history, is still perceived as a "big family", older members in particular would like an even greater emotional connection to "their" DGM.

These are some results of the first listening tour, reported by the DGM presidents Prof. Dr.-Ing. Frank M├╝cklich and Dr. Oliver Schauerte at the DGM board meeting on 17 May 2019 in Berlin - and which will be continued in June. The report was the basis for the decision to entrust the DGM office with the elaboration of a concept to further develop all three positions within the society. Regarding the already existing international visibility, the board decided to recommend South Korea as host country for the upcoming MSE 2020 in Darmstadt. In addition, the regulations on the terms of service of the MSE Scientific Committee, the rotation principle of the Topic Coordinators and the current proposal for the MSE 2020 Chair (Prof. Dr. Sanjay Mathur) were unanimously approved.

Further topics of the board meeting included a report from the DGM advisory board, the digital transformation in the MatWerk sector (NFDI4MSE consortium), the nomination of DGM committee members and the financial, business and activity report.
