SAMPE Benelux student contest 2021

As you may know (or will soon be notified!), this year's SAMPE Benelux Spring meeting is planned for Tuesday May 11th 2021, hosted by BMC  – Brightland Materials Centre in Geleen, The Netherlands (see: This edition will be hosted online and includes a virtual visit to the research centre. Covid-19 restrictions will determine its detailed organisation.  Accordingly, the SAMPE Benelux 2021 Students' meeting will be held the day before, so students are offered the opportunity to subsequently participate in the Benelux Spring Meeting as well. The student winners will have a chance to present their work at the SAMPE Benelux meeting at the same time!

This year the SAMPE Benelux 2021 Students' meeting will therefore take place on:
Monday May 10th 2021

In analogy to the SAMPE Spring meeting, this edition will be hosted on-site (if allowed), otherwise online. Covid-19 restrictions will determine the detailed organisation (hour and perhaps….. a physical meeting?!?).

As in previous years, also this year SAMPE Benelux is allowed to delegate 2 students (just as many as France, the UK and Germany!) to the SAMPE Europe 2021 Conference in Baden, Baden, Switzerland (29-30 September 2021

To show the great quality of student research done in the Benelux, on behalf of SAMPE Benelux I would therefore like to invite:

  •  Excellent students in material and process science and engineering
  •  BSc/MSc students in their final year (at moment of selection)
  •  PhD students in the middle of their project

to participate in our annual SAMPE Benelux Students meeting to present their work. Please, submit through our website:

During this event students from the participating groups are invited to present their work. A jury consisting of staff members and experts from industry selects a price winner who will be given the opportunity to represent SAMPE Europe 2021 International Students' Seminar, during the Fall Conference in Baden, Switzerland. Additionally, the student meeting offers an excellent opportunity to meet and discuss with colleagues working in the same field.
