Powder Metallurgy Thesis Competition launched

January 29, 2012

The European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) has launched its 2012 Powder Metallurgy (PM) Competition for theses in both Diploma (Masters) and Doctorate (PhD) levels. The aim of the competition is to develop an interest in and to promote powder metallurgy among young scientists at European academic establishments, and to encourage research at under-graduate and post-graduate levels.

In order to be accepted, the subject of the thesis must be capable of being classified under the topic: ‘Powder Metallurgy’. The thesis must have been officially accepted or approved by the applicant’s teaching establishment during the 2009/2010, 2010/2011 or 2011/2012 academic years. Applicants must be graduates of a European university. The entry deadline is 4th May 2012.

Winners will be awarded their prizes at the opening Plenary Session of the Euro PM2012 Congress & Exhibition in Basel, Switzerland on Monday, 17th September 2012.

Each winner will receive a cheque for 750 Euros for the Diploma/Masters category and 1000 Euros for the Doctorate/PhD category. Höganäs AB is once again sponsoring the competition prizes.

Winners will have the opportunity of having their work published in the journal “Powder Metallurgy”, and both winners will have free registration to the Euro PM2012 Congress and Exhibition.
