Welcome to HMS!
HMS was established in 2000 by a team of 20 scientists and engineers from Greek Universities and Industry. The main mission of HMS is the promotion and development of the science, technology and applications of metallic materials in Greece. HMS envisages to accommodate the long tradition of Greece in metallurgy and the high quality research conducted by the Greek Universities and Research Centres. In 2010 HMS became a full member of the Federation of European Materials Societies (FEMS). In 2017, HMS organized EUROMAT 2017 (the European Congress and Exhibition on Advanced Materials and Processes) in Thessaloniki, one of the biggest gatherings in the field of materials science in Europe. Under the auspices of HMS, 7 national conferences have been organized by Greek University Laboratories active in the science and technology of metallic materials in: 2001 (Athens), 2004 (Volos), 2007 (Patras), 2010 (Thessaloniki), 2013 (Volos), 2016 (Ioannina) and 2019 (Athens).
