Thematic Workshop «New Trends in Metallic Materials Processing» took place on March 21-22 in Bucharest, Romania

In the eighteenth century, on January 23, 1729, the first School of Mining and Ferrous Metallurgy was founded in Oravița, Romania. Thereby, for celebrating 290 years of metallurgical education in Romania, the second edition of the thematic workshop «New Trends in Metallic Materials Processing», hosted by University POLITEHNICA of Bucharest, gathered together on March 21-22, 2019 more than 100 participants from 35 companies from the industry (Romania, Russia, Germany, Switzerland and Bulgaria) and also professors, scientists, researchers and students from 4 Romanian major universities, working in the field of metallic materials processing.

The event was organized by the Materials Processing and Ecometallurgy Department (Materials Science and Engineering Faculty, University POLITEHNICA of Bucharest, Romania) in cooperation with the Romanian Forging Association and the Romanian Foundry Association and included a main plenary session of presentations and lectures and a parallel poster session. Also, more than 20 stands were arranged for companies’ presentation. The main objective of this second edition of the workshop was to create a joint meeting between representatives from the industry, academia and students in order to enable them to exchange ideas and information and to activate a common platform for specialists working in the materials processing field.
