Plansee Seminar celebrates its 60th birthday

It was 60 years ago that Dr. Paul Schwarzkopf conceived of the Plansee Seminar. At the end of June 1952, scientists gathered in Reutte / Austria at his personal invitation to discuss the properties of metals (De Re Metallica).

Ever since then, the Plansee Seminar has been held at regular intervals.

And in 2013 it will be time once again for scientists and engineers from companies, research institutes and universities across the globe to present the latest scientific findings from the world of powder metallurgy. The 18th Seminar will be held from the 3rd to the 7th of June 2013.

The focus will be on all aspects of the powder metallurgy value chain – from processing the concentrate and powder production all the way through to finished products and recycling refractory and hard metals.
