EPMA PM Thesis Competition 2019 now open for submissions

January 7, 2019

The European Powder Metallurgy Association has launched its 2019 Powder Metallurgy Thesis Competition, sponsored by Högänas AB, and is now accepting entries via its website. The deadline for submissions is April 24, 2019.

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, must be classified under the topic of Powder Metallurgy (which includes metal Additive Manufacturing), are judged by an international panel of experts drawn from both academia and industry.

The aim of the competition is to develop interest in and to promote 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 prizes of €750 and €1,000 for Masters and Doctorate levels respectively. In addition, each will receive complimentary registration to the Euro PM2019 Congress & Exhibition as well as the opportunity of having their work published in the scientific journal Powder Metallurgy.
