PM Summer School 2019 Programme

The programme consists of a 5-day residential Summer School from Monday 15 July until Friday 19 July 2019. The 2019 Summer School will be held at Department of Industrial Engineering, University of Trento, Trento, Italy and will be coordinated jointly by Prof. Marcos Actis Grande from the Politecnico di Torino and Prof. Christian Gierl-Mayer from TU Vienna together with Prof. Alberto Molinari from University of Trento.

Accommodation will be provided from Sunday 14 July at Hotel Everest.

Who Should Attend?

The events are particularly designed for young graduate designers, engineers and scientists drawn from a wide range of disciplines such as materials science, design, engineering, manufacturing or metallurgy. All will benefit from an in depth overview of PM presented in the course. The course will be presented in English and will provide a valuable opportunity to improve attendees' knowledge of the current status of PM technology. The course is open to graduates preferably under the age of 35 who have received their degrees from a European university.
