PM Life is a training programme aimed at professionals and graduates willing to develop their career in Powder Metallurgy. 

There are six Technology Courses: 

  • Additive Manufacturing (Fraunhofer IFAM, Dresden) 
  • Full Density Processes (Université de Bourgogne, Dijon) 
  • Hard Materials (CEIT, San Sebastián) 
  • Metal Injection Moulding (Universidad Carlos III Madrid) 
  • Metal Powders (Chalmers, Göteborg) 
  • Press&Sinter (Università di Trento)

To facilitate participation, starting from this edition the courses are split in two parts. In each course, there will be an online part dedicated to the Fundamentals (on 2-3 days), and an onsite part, dedicated to Practice (2-3 days). In the latter, most of the time is devoted to lab work, lab and plant visits to companies and research institutes, and to intense and fruitful networking. 


A certificate is awarded at the end of each course (both Fundamentals and Practice for the same course must have been attended). 

Here is a summary table with all course dates.

Participants can choose one or more courses: if you wish to do so, register for them separately. You will find all details on the courses in the relevant pages. 

The coordinators of the Technology Courses will make sure that the onsite experience will be at the same time satisfactory and safe for the trainees, complying with the regulations in the hosting regions. Clearly, the organisation will monitor the COVID-19 situation, and will consider changes in the programme whenever needed. Participants will be informed in due time, and, in case, reimbursed according to the Terms and Conditions mentioned below. 

Differently from previous years, internship is not officially part of the PM Life programme*. 

PM Life will provide the knowledge and experience needed to advance in your career!  Registration will open soon!

*EPMA can assist in case of requests. Some companies or universities may be available. Contact us if you are looking for internship experience.
