The European Scientific Association for Material Forming (ESAFORM) awards the ESAFORM Scientific Prize since 1999 to recognize young scientists who have brought an outstanding contribution in the field of material forming. Excellence is evaluated based on several criteria: quality of scientific work; international networking; leadership of a research team; research not only focused on a single topic; and the balance between academic and research activities. Prof. Klusemann convinced the jury in all areas. The jury acknowledged his scientific achievements in various areas as well as his involvement in academic duties and teaching.
