Due to the persisting worries regarding the global COVID-19 pandemic and the consequent travel difficulties for the coming months, EPMA has decided to cancel the Summer School initially planned on July 2021.
We are pleased though to inform you that it has been rescheduled to next year and will still take place in Ciudad Real, Spain, but now in July 2022.
We will come back to you in due time with more information about the 2022 Summer School.
We thank you for your understanding and remain at your disposal to give you more information if needed.
The 20th Residential PM Summer School for Young Engineers
About EPMA Powder Metallurgy Summer Schools
The EPMA PM Summer Schools have been designed to offer participants from all parts of Europe an advanced teaching of PM’s advantages and limitations by some of the leading academic and industrial personnel in Europe. It is also a rare opportunity to stimulate direct technical discussions by young scientists and engineers who are interested in broadening their knowledge through interaction with senior figures in the PM industry.
Powder Metallurgy (PM) is the generic name for a series of related processes where powders are compacted into components of the desired shape and then the compacts are strengthened by sintering at high temperature in excess of 1100o C. PM can utilise a range of materials including steels, non-ferrous metals, friction and anti-friction materials, high porosity materials and filters, hard materials and cemented carbides, magnets and materials for electronic applications.
