Honour excellent achievements

DGM Awards and Honours

With its personal awards and honours, the DGM aims to contribute to making excellent achievements in this field visible, but to also honour individuals and support promising young talent.

Symbolically, the DGM prize of an artistic sculpture "Durchbruch" (breakthrough) represents this statement: Made of many materials, it is presented during DGM-Day as a part of the DGM Awards to a middle-aged researcher, who has earned this recognition through scientific or technical achievements in the field of Materials science and engineering  .
