The ESAFORM Scientific Prize is awarded annually. The prize is 2000 Euros. It intends to recognize a young scientist, who has brought an outstanding contribution in the field of materials forming. This contribution may be either theoretical, or experimental, or both. It may concern any kind of materials (metals, polymers, composites, ceramics, glass, concrete, food materials…) and any forming process (rolling, forging, sheet forming, casting, machining, extrusion, injection moulding, blow moulding…). The excellence of the candidate will be evaluated on following points :

  1. Quality of the scientific work confirmed by publications

  2. International networking

  3. Leadership of a research team

  4. Research not only focused on a single topic

  5. Balanced activities: academic work, research projects

It intends to distinguish a PhD researcher, who has brought an outstanding contribution in the field of industrial material forming. Based on a sound scientific fundament, the work should demonstrate a clear industrial relevance supported by actual application of the work. The contribution may lead to a (potential) innovation in design, control or performance of industrial materials processing. It may concern any kind of material (metal, polymer, composite, ceramic, glass, concrete, food etc.) and any forming process (rolling, forging, sheet forming, casting, machining, extrusion, injection moulding, blow moulding etc.).

The applicant must have finished a PhD research project related to material forming and the application for this prize should follow within 2 years of the approval of the PhD thesis. The research should show clear industrial application, evidenced by cooperation with an industrial partner.
