The UK’s Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3) has named Prof Herbert Danninger as the recipient of its 2020 Ivor Jenkins Medal. The prestigious award is presented to individuals in recognition of a significant contribution that has enhanced the scientific, industrial or technological understanding of materials processing or component production using Powder Metallurgy and particulate materials.

Prof Danninger is Professor for Chemical Technology of Inorganic Materials at Technische Universität Wien (TU Vienna), Austria, and has been Dean of the Faculty of Technical Chemistry for 8 years. He holds lectures about Chemical Technology, Powder Metallurgy, and Materials Science and Technology. In an academic career spanning over 40 years, he has around 520 scientific articles published in peer-reviewed journals, as well as in proceedings of international conferences, predominantly on Powder Metallurgy.

“I feel very honoured to be awarded the Ivor Jenkins Medal,” Prof Danninger told PM Review. “I had the pleasure to meet Ivor Jenkins personally on numerous occasions, in particular the ‘Powder Metallurgy Group Meetings’ held in the 1980s every October.”

Graduating as an engineer (Dipl.-Ing.) from TU Vienna in 1979, he went on to complete his doctoral thesis (Dr.techn.) at the Institute for Chemical Technology of Inorganic Materials in 1980. He was later made head of the Powder Metallurgy Laboratory at the Institute in 1993 and became Associate Professor (Ao.Univ.Prof.) in 1997.

In 2002 he was named head of the Chemical Technologies Division at Institute of Chemical Technologies and Analytics and a year later was appointed to Full Professor for Chemical Technology of Inorganic Materials. Danninger became Director of the Institute of Chemical Technologies and Analytics in 2004 and became Dean of the Faculty of Technical Chemistry in 2011.

In addition to the Ivor Jenkins Medal, Prof Danninger has received numerous international awards in recognition of his work. These have included the Skaupy Lecture Award of the Gemeinschaftsausschuss Pulvermetallurgie, Germany, in 2006, the APMI Fellow Award from APMI International, Princeton NJ, USA, in 2010 and was named a Fellow of the European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) in 2018.
