News and Recent Activities


E-MRS seeks to honor those whose work has already had a major impact in the field, and those young researchers whose work already leads to great expectations for future leadership.

The EU-40 Materials Prize is reserved to researchers showing exceptional promise as leaders in the materials science having performed the research for which this prize is awarded while working in Europe.

The award consists of a 5,000 Euro cash prize, a certificate, waiver of the meeting registration fee and a plenary talk at the 2017 Spring Meeting of the European Materials Research Society where the award will be presented.

Nominations should include:

  1. Curriculum Vitae including birth date.
  2. List of key publications (including citations and impact factors)
  3. Letters of support from two well established scientists
  4. Any additional supporting information relevant to the award

The nomination package should not exceed 10 pages (excluding the list of key publications) and should be sent by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (subject: eu40materials) before February 28, 2017 (new deadline).

The nominee shall not have reached his/her 40th birthday in the year in which the nomination is submitted (2017).

The E-MRS in brief

Founded in 1983, the European Materials Research Society (E-MRS) now has more than 4.000 members from industry, government, academia and research laboratories, who meet regularly to debate recent technological developments of functional materials. The E-MRS differs from many single-discipline professional societies by encouraging scientists, engineers and research managers to exchange information on an interdisciplinary platform, and by recognizing professional and technical excellence by promoting awards for achievement from student to senior scientist level. As an adhering body of the International Union of Materials Research Societies (IUMRS), the E-MRS enjoys and benefits from very close relationships with other Materials Research organizations elsewhere in Europe and around the world.

Each year, E-MRS organizes, co-organizes, sponsors or co-sponsors numerous scientific events and meetings. The major society conference, the E-MRS Spring Meeting, is organized every year in May or June and offers on average 25 topical symposia. It is widely recognized as being of the highest international significance and is the greatest of its kind in Europe with about 2.500 attendees every year. Each symposium publishes its own proceedings that document the latest experimental and theoretical understanding of material growth and properties, the exploitation of new advanced processes, and the development of electronic devices that can benefit best from the outstanding physical properties of functional materials.
