The European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) has launched its 2021 Powder Metallurgy Thesis Competition.
Held every two years from its 1998 inception until 2016, when it moved to its current annual structure, the aim of the competition is to develop interest and promote PM among young scientists at European academic institutions, and encourage research at under-and postgraduate levels.
The competition is open to all graduates of European Universities whose theses have been officially accepted or approved by the applicant’s teaching establishment during the previous three years. Theses, which must fall under the topic of Powder Metallurgy (including Additive Manufacturing), are judged by an international panel of PM experts from both academia and industry.
Competition winners are awarded €500 and €1,000 for Masters and Doctorate levels, respectively, courtesy of the journal Metals, an open-access journal by MDPI. In addition, each winner receives complimentary registration to the Euro PM2021 Congress & Exhibition, courtesy of the EPMA.
The submission deadline is May 5, 2021.
