Following the ongoing success of the EPMA Keynote Paper Award, sponsored by the journal Powder Metallurgy, KNP Awards will continue for Euro PM2023 Congress & Exhibition.

When the Technical Programme Committee meet in February, they will carefully shortlist a pre-selection of submitted abstracts, then in May the KNP Awards Committee will meet and choose the KNP winners based on the manuscript.

For a paper to be considered for Keynote status it should report original research or review a topic of interest to the PM community. It must not have been published or be under consideration for publication elsewhere.

The Keynote papers will receive an extended 30-minute slot for their presentation at the beginning of the relevant session and will go on to be published in the industry journal Powder Metallurgy, who are also sponsoring €250 for each of the successful Keynotes papers published in the industry journal Powder Metallurgy.

Following the decision by the sponsor “Industry Journal Powder Metallurgy” not to honour its sponsorship of the Keynote papers after the 2023 Congress, EPMA has decided to award the €250 prize to all winners.
