The European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) has named the individuals who have made a contribution to the PM industry’s development from the scientific/academic community with its annual Fellowship Award.

The 2018 Fellowship Awards were presented to:

Professor Paul Beiss, IWM - RWTH Aachen, Germany
Professor Paul Beiss is a graduate of mechanical engineering, who studied at RWTH Aachen with a focus on production engineering until 1972. His doctoral thesis was on extrusion of copper. He made a change to become professor for metallic materials in mechanical engineering RWTH Aachen in 1994. He is a Fellow of the American Powder Metallurgy Institute and has been active with the EPMA since 2004, including the EuroPress & Sinter sectoral group and the RET working group.

Professor Dr Herbert Danninger, Technische Universität Wien, Vienna, Austria
Professor Herbert Danninger is a graduate in chemical engineering, which he achieved in 1979. His doctoral thesis was completed at the Institute for Chemical Technology of Inorganic Materials, entitled ‘Influence of the Manufacturing Parameters on the Properties of Tungsten Heavy Alloys’. He was appointed as a Full Professor for Chemical Technology of Inorganic Materials in 2003 and in January 2016 he was awarded the Doctor honoris causa of Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Spain. He has been active with the EPMA since 2004 and is active with the EPMA EuroHIP, EuroMIM, EuroAM, EuroHM sectoral groups and the EPMI working group. He is also editor for the Journal of Powder Metallurgy, which is the official journal of the EPMA.
