The European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) has launched its 2020 Powder Metallurgy Thesis Competition and is accepting entries via its website up until April 24, 2020.

The competition is open to all graduates of a European University whose theses have been officially accepted or approved by the applicant’s teaching establishment during the previous three years. Theses, which must be classified under the topic of Powder Metallurgy, are judged by an international panel of PM experts drawn from both academia and industry.

The aim of the competition is to develop interest in PM among young scientists at European academic institutions, and to encourage research at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

The PM Thesis competition winners will be awarded the following:

  • Prizes of €750 and €1,000 for Masters and Doctorate levels respectively, sponsored by Högänas AB
  • Complimentary registration to the Euro PM2020 Congress & Exhibition courtesy of EPMA
  • The opportunity of having their work published in the scientific journal Powder Metallurgy
