06/23 - Summer School Non-conventional sintering: science and technology

This school will be held at the University of Trento, Italy, from 5th to 7th June 2023.

Non-conventional sintering is emerging as a powerful tool to decrease the carbon footprint of the ceramic industry and as a new approach to obtain out-of-equilibrium materials, (including metastable phases, organic-inorganic composite and modified defect chemistries) which results in a bunch of novel mechanical and functional properties.

The Summer School aims at deepening the fundamental scientific and technological aspects of non-conventional sintering, including the effect of very high heating rates, electromagnetic field, electrical currents and the presence of liquids.

The event is open to Master and PhD students, young PostDocs and professionals, who want to deepen their knowledge on cutting-edge sintering processes and technologies.
