Report on the Shaping 8 Summer School

Prior to the Shaping 8 Conference, a Summer School "A swiss knife for ceramics shaping: Between fiction, hope and vision" was held on September 13th and 14th, 2022 devoted to ceramics processing science.

The objective of the summer school was to increase awareness of fundamentals (key metrics, current or inherent problems) and acquire best practices of selected shaping technologies.

There were 27 registered participants from 11 countries.

6 lectures were given by 7 internationally renowned scientists who shared their experience:

  • Thomas Graule : Module 1: Pitfalls in powder selection, characterization and modification
  • Rodrigo Moreno : Module 2 : Fundamentals about colloids, their rheology and application to suspension based shaping
  • Giorgia Franchin : Module 3 : Additive manufacturing of complex ceramics from a sub-micron to meter scale
  • Zhe Zhao: Module 4:A toolbox towards defect-free ceramics by 3D printing
  • Marc Bohner and Yassine Maazouz : Module 5: Fundamentals of ceramic shaping for biomedical applications
  • Peter Holtappels : Module 6 : The role of Ceramic Shaping in Energy Conversion and Storage


This school was sponsored by the JECS Trust.
