DVS - German Welding Society is glad that two DVS members have each received one of the renowned prizes of the International Institute of Welding (IIW). Every year, IIW confers its awards at the Annual Assembly which has now taken place online for the first time. From July 15 to 25, members, experts, young professionals and interested parties were able to take part in the working groups and the discussions in a virtual environment. The winners have now received their prizes in advance by mail.

Professor Dr. Ing. Adolf Hobbacher, holder of the DVS Ring of Honour, received the "Fellow of IIW" award for his many years of service in the IIW. This prize acknowledges personalities for their considerable contribution in science and technology in the field of welding technology. In this respect, IIW praised, in particular, Professor Dr. Ing. Hobbacher's contribution to the promotion and preservation of the sector. Professor Hobbacher was previously honoured with the "Evgeny Paton Prize" in 2013 for his significant life's work in science and technology.

The "Henry Granjon Prize" in Category B "Material Behaviour and Weldability" went to the DVS IIW Young Professional Dipl. Ing. Klaus Schricker from the Ilmenau University of Technology. The "Henry Granjon Prize" serves to distinguish master and doctoral theses or comparable projects relating to industrial research by up-and-coming scientists in four categories. This mark of distinction serves to promote young people's interest in welding and the allied processes.

Because of the current situation, all the winners of the IIW Awards 2020 will receive their prizes during the official presentation ceremony within the framework of the coming IIW Annual Assembly in Genoa (Italy) from June 20 to 25 next year.
