This is a scheme which sponsors selected young materials scientists to lecture throughout Europe as "ambassadors" of the materials science community. Lecturers are selected based on the broad significance of their work and their ability to communicate effectively. Each Lecturer tours several materials science centres in different European countries, with the costs of the lecture tour being carried by FEMS and/or the hosting institution. In addition the lecturers are requested to give a talk at the EUROMAT conference taking place the year after their election.
Henry Proudhon’s research addresses extremely challenging problems in materials science, such as short cracks propagation (fatigue), plasticity in polycrystalline materials and solid damage at contacts (fretting).
His original approach associates computer modelling in mechanics (multiscale mechanical behaviour…) and physics (coherent diffraction…) with experimental developments, e.g. in ESRF, and brings direct insight from the material microstructure to the mechanical properties.
