IOM3 2015 awards ceremony
On 14 July, winners of the IOM3 Awards were invited to a ceremony to celebrate their achievements at Kensington Roof Gardens, at a dinner hosted by the Institute and sponsored by the world's leading supplier of niobium and niobium technology, CBMM.
The annual awards recognise both personal triumphs and outstanding contributions of companies within the materials cycle. Awards presented on the night included the Medal for Excellence, awarded for contributions to the mining industry, which went to Oil & Gas UK and the Futers Gold Medal, for outstanding services to the international minerals industry, awarded to Derek Fray FRS FRChem FIMMM.
The 2015 Silver Medal was awarded to Dr Matthew Cole CEng FIoN. Each year, this award goes to a Younger Member in recognition of an outstanding contribution to the broad field of materials science. Matthew said, “I feel privileged. These awards are critical, they really help in the formative years of your career”.
