The European Materials Research Society (E-MRS), with a membership of over 4,000 is the premier society in Europe for researchers studying functional materials, from semiconductors to nanomaterials and biomaterials.

As well as organising two prestigious conferences each year, E-MRS acts as a voice for European researchers with funders and governments, and coordinates with global organisations. This year, E-MRS celebrated 40 years since its inception.

On being elected, Prof. Kenyon stated:

I am delighted to have been elected president of E-MRS. I have been coming to its meetings for over 20 years, and I really value the opportunity to help the society continue to support and strengthen the European materials research community. E-MRS makes an important contribution to scientific cooperation; long may it last.

Tony’s stint will commence on 1 September 2023.
