New cooperation! EPCIA Student Award

The EPCIA Student Award grants all students – graduate and PhD candidates – the possibility to attend a conference and present their thesis on passive components to an expert audience. The Award is jointly presented by the European Passive Component Industry Association (EPCIA) and the European Center for Power Electronics (ECPE).

Passive components, such as capacitors, resistors, inductors or filters, are crucial to make the (electronics) world 'go round'. There is no semiconductor component and no electronic circuitry which can work properly without passive components.

Each Award is granted with € 1,000, subject to the provision that it may be split amongst more than one applicant.



To see if you or your team is eligible for an EPCIA Student Award, read the Terms & Conditions carefully.
If so, do not hesitate to apply and send the following documentation to this e-mail address: epcia[at]t-online[dot]de

  • a completed Application Form

  • an abstract of the related thesis or paper

  • the title of the ECPE event you wish to join

  • and documentation proving you are affiliated to a university

All submissions will be reviewed by a panel of experts that is going to decide on winning applications based on their degree of innovation / originality related to passive components and their benefits for consumers, society, or the environment.
