Dear Colleagues,

FEMS has created a new European wide masters competition to showcase the best masters students from across Europe. The FEMS Masters Thesis award is intended to recognize the best Masters Thesis on Materials Science and Engineering, presented in any Academic Institution from the country of any FEMS member Society. The FEMS National Societies may nominate one candidate per year. To be eligible the Masters Thesis should have been obtained up to a maximum of two academic years before the FEMS final takes place.

 Communiqué from the FEMS President, Paloma Fernandez:

As of May 3 2018, the new Executive Secretary of FEMS is Ms Efi Fragkou. On behalf of FEMS we welcome Efi and wish her a joyful and fruitful collaboration with FEMS.
Former Executive Secretary Dr Hugh Dunlop, will continue his collaboration with FEMS as Communication Manager.
