The European Powder Metallurgy Association has organized a Powder Metallurgy Thesis Competition, at both Masters and Doctorate levels, every two years since 1998, and annually since 2016.
The aim of the competition is to develop interest in and to promote powder metallurgy among young scientists at European academic institutions and to encourage research at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
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, 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.
Winners are awarded the following:
- prizes of €750 and €1,000 for Masters and Doctorate levels respectively, sponsored by Högänas AB
- complimentary registration to the Euro PM2017 Congress & Exhibition courtesy of EPMA
- the opportunity of having their work published in the prestigious journal Powder Metallurgy.
