The European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) has opened its 2022 Powder Metallurgy Thesis Competition. The aim of the competition is to develop interest in and promote Powder Metallurgy among young scientists at European academic institutions and to encourage research at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

Since 1994, the EPMA has held this competition, initially every two years before moving to an annual model in 2016. This year’s thesis competition is sponsored by HILTI.

This 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 will be judged by an international panel of PM experts, drawn from both academia and industry. Winners will receive €500 (Masters level) and €1,000 (Doctorate level) and complimentary registration to the World PM2022 Congress & Exhibition.

Interested applicants can find more information and submit their thesis here.
