Far-reaching development concept
International Tammann Medal

The International Tammann Medal is awarded for outstanding internationally visible achievements in the field of materials science and engineering. The prize is aimed in particular at internationally leading foreign scientists* who maintain close and long-standing professional and personal contact with DGM members and have thus been able to achieve significant successes in scientific and/or technological terms. The prize is intended to commemorate Gustav Tammann, who founded metallurgy as a physical-chemical science.

The prize consists of a minted silver coin and a certificate confirming the award of the prize, stating the work awarded the prize. The prize winner reports summarizing the results of the awarded work at the central event of the DGM. The prize is awarded to an individual no more than once a year. The awarding of the prize may be suspended if no researcher is recognized as worthy of the prize. It is not permissible to split the prize. The prize is awarded on the basis of a proposal by the Award Committee and a decision by the Board of Directors of the DGM. The award is announced publicly on the occasion of a central event of the DGM of the corresponding year (e.g. DGM Day). The announcement of the awarded prize is also made in the central presentation media of the DGM.
