During the Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS) Annual Meeting of 2020, which took place in San Diego, (California, USA), Damien Tourret, Resarcher at the IMDEA Materials Institute, was awarded The Young Leaders Professional Development Award.
This award provides an opportunity for young, professional members of TMS to advance in the field of materials science through participation in Society activities. Through interaction with TMS division leaders, young individuals participate in the decision-making and long-range planning of the Society. The program’s purpose is two-fold:
- To enhance the professional development of young, dynamic and committed members through leadership opportunities and networking.
- To foster an appreciation and desire among young members to play an active role in TMS and advance to volunteer leadership positions in the Society in the future.
Recipients also become a member of the Young Professionals Committee, which meets during the TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition.
This award is funded by/through the TMS Foundation.
