The city of Reims noted for its Cathedral of Notre-Dame de Reims and being the centre of the Champagne region hosted this year's annual Euro PM Congress & Exhibition, organised and sponsored by the European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA). A truly international event with delegates attending from over 40 countries in all regions including the Far East, Africa and the Americas. The appeal of the Euro PM2015 event meant that it attracted over 200 Oral and Poster presentations and a strong attendance of some 800 participants.
The event also included a sell-out exhibition with some 90 booths covering companies from all parts of the PM supply chain. Jonathan Wroe, EPMA Executive Director said "Reims has proved a delightful location for Euro PM2015 with its compact facilities. We would like to thank the City of Reims, our members and delegates for their support, which is much appreciated".
During the Congress plenary session EPMA Distinguished Service Awards were presented to Brian James (ex Hoeganaes Corp) and Lorenz Sigl (Plansee SE) and six special keynote paper awards to those papers selected as having the highest merit were presented to:
- Dr Raquel de Oro Calderon from the Technical University of Vienna,
- Dr Anssi Laukkanen of VTT Manufacturing and Materials Finland,
- Dipl Ing Thays Machry from Airbus Industries, UK
- Ing Andreas Meyer from Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nurnberg
- Dr Alfred Sidambe of JRI Orthopaedics in UK
- Miss Anna Weddeling of Ruhr-Universitat Bochum
In addition, the second Young Engineers Event was again most successful with students from three Universities in attendance. The traditional Congress Dinner was held in the Palace du Tau and provided a suitable finale to a dynamic and productive Euro PM event.
