Zwick Science Award - promoting science

(PresseBox) (Ulm, )
On 26 April the winners of the Zwick Science Award 2015 received their awards in the course of the seventh Zwick Academia Day, held at the Czech Academy of Sciences in Prague against a scientific backdrop of lectures on the subject of materials testing.

This year’s winner of the Paul Roell medal, together with the first prize of 5,000 euros, is Enrique Alabort of the University of Oxford, one of the world’s ten leading engineering universities. In a compelling lecture he explained the superplasticity of alloy materials, including for example the properties of polycrystalline materials, which can deform by several hundred per cent. Second prize went to Benjamin Zillmann of Chemnitz University of Technology (Germany), with a paper on the biaxial deformation of sheet metals, primarily in compression tests. Third place was occupied by Ozgur Atalay PhD of Istanbul Technical University, who highlighted possible ways of integrating sensors into textiles by means of electrically conductive fibres. The three winners were chosen out of 160 entries from 26 countries.

Entries for the Zwick Science Award are invited once again this year; the closing date for submissions is the end of November 2016. Full information is available here.

With the aim of encouraging an international exchange of information between universities and industry, the 2017 Academia Day will take place at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology on 26 May 2017. The 2016 Zwick Science Award will again be presented on this occasion.
