Joint Press Release by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology and BAM Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing

The formal farewell ceremony for Professor Dr. Manfred Hennecke, President of BAM Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing took place in Berlin today. He has been the head of BAM since 2002, has raised the scientific excellence of this federal institute and promoted the interaction between consulting, testing and research during this period. Professor Manfred Hennecke was awarded the Honorary Ring of DIN, the German Institute for Standardisation for his achievements. The renowned scientist Professor Dr. Ulrich Panne is his successor taking the seat of BAM's President. He is professor of "Analytical Chemistry" at Humboldt University in Berlin and headed the BAM "Analytical Chemistry, Reference Materials" department at the same time. He moved to BAM's topmost position on 1 September 2013.

State Secretary in the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi) Anne Ruth Herkes said: "As the chief guardian of safety in engineering, Professor Manfred Hennecke provided BAM with excellent leadership for eleven years. He has significantly advanced the Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing. The BAM doctoral program, flexibility in support for young scientists and the establishment of S professorships are milestones of his activity. The Federal Ministry of Economics could always rely on his constructive support in connection with statutory duties and advice for politicians. We have an excellent and worthy successor in Professor Ulrich Panne, who will ensure that BAM will continue to enjoy a world-wide reputation as a centre of excellence in scientific research. I look forward to our further cooperation."

Professor Manfred Hennecke expressed his gratitude for being awarded the DIN honorary ring at the farewell ceremony. He said "BAM's research results guarantee the quality of our technical services and they are integrated in the standards. Both private companies and the German industry will benefit from these factors."

Professor Manfred Hennecke has personally encouraged the transfer of research results into regulations and standards, both as DIN's Vice President and Chairman of the Materials Testing Standards Committee (NMP). Today's award is accompanied with membership to the Waldemar Hellmich Circle, DIN's Honorary Senate.
