Stockholm, Nov. 28(Greenpost)–The International Association of Advanced Materials (IAAM) recognized professor Herbert Gleiter with the prestigious Advanced Materials Laureate 2019. Professor Gleiter is awarded for his substantial contributions towards research perspective, expanding education, promoting materials research and its application at a global standard. The award ceremony was held on November 1st during the Asian Advanced Materials Congress, on the Voyager of the Seas, RCC, Singapore. It was the 30th assembly of the flagship event Advanced Materials Congress and it was graced with the participation of researchers and industry decision maker from over 40 countries.

– I think it’s a very good idea to organize events om cruise ships. Keeping people together and putting them all in a pleasant atmosphere will create high networking opportunities. Science comes out from discussions, it will not come from papers or telephone calls, says Prof. Herbert Gleiter.

Herbert Gleiter is a pioneer in the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology, especially in nanoglasses and non-crystalline nanomaterials. He has a Ph.D. in physics from the Technical University of Stuttgart, Germany and obtained his D.Sc. in material science at the University of Bochum, Germany. He was the Professor/Director of the Institute of Material Science, University of  Saarland, Germany during 1973–1994. He was also the founding director of the Institute of New Materials, Saarbruecken, Germany aswell as director of the Institute of Nanotechnology, Research Center Karlsruhe, Germany. Prof. Gleiter has almost six decades of experience in this field and has been widely recognized by many countries and scientific organizations including the Leibniz, the Max Planck Prize, the Humboldt, Heisenberg, von Hippel and the Blaise Pascal Medal as well as four honorary doctorates and several honorary professorships. In order to promote research in advanced materials and innovation in the Asian continent, he established the Herbert Gleiter Institute of Nanoscience at Nanjing University of Science and Technology, Nanjing, China in 2012.

Every year, IAAM honors the pioneer researchers with the Advanced Materials Laureate for their notable and outstanding contributions to the advancement of materials for global excellence.
– Advanced Materials Laureate is considered one of the highest honors for a researcher working in a diverse background, either from physical, chemical, biological, engineering, mathematical and medical sciences along with their substantial contribution towards research perspective, expanding education, promoting materials research and its applications at a global standard, mentoring professionals and series of advancements on the related topics. We are very happy to award Professor Gleiter for Laureate of 2019, says Dr. Ashutosh Tiwari, founder of IAAM.

IAAM is engaged in promotion of the rapidly expanding field of advanced materials science, engineering and technology all over the world. The association also offers the highest honors to scientists and young technocrats to inspire them to develop innovative technology for social empowerment.  During the 30th Advanced Materials Congress, IAAM recognized the innovative ideas of researchers, scientists, and technocrats from all over the world to give them an impetus to progress in their respective research areas. The selections for these IAAM awards are done by a duly constituted awards committee and are given to the awardees at the AMC assemblies.
