The Tammann Commemorative Medal honours DGM members who have, as leader of a scientific research group in the field of Materials science and engineering , made outstanding contributions to the field in the form of a far-reaching scientific research or technical development concept. It is awarded only once a year, to an individual and serves as a memorial to Gustav Tammann, who established metallurgy as physico-chemical science.
