The technical course content has been selected by Dr Leo Prakash and Dr Steven Moseley and will begin with an overview of hard materials (HSS to diamond) and a history of hardmetals. Subsequent sessions will include raw material sources, manufacturing routes for raw materials, shaping, sintering and finishing amongst others. 

The participation fee for the two day course is €695 for EPMA members, €795 for non-members and €650 for academics or students.  The fee includes two nights’ accommodation, (April 9 and 10), all relevant course documents plus refreshments and a course meal on the evening of April 10.

An additional feature of this year’s event is a laboratory course on April 9 at the Vienna Technical University which will introduce the fundamentals of hardmetal manufacturing. The laboratory course will focus on the practice of manufacturing for young engineers and is organised by Prof Wolf-Dieter Schubert. The fee for this additional course is €350 with places allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. 

The deadline for applications is 7 February 2014.
