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.
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 initiated and granted by the European Passive Component Industry Association (EPCIA), together with the European Center for Power Electronics (ECPE) and the European Passive Components Institute (EPCI).
All students (graduate and PhD) interested in passive components are invited to apply.
It grants one time €5,000 price money for the best PhD thesis and €1,000 for the best thesis or paper written by students.
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: info[at]epcia[dot]org
- a completed Application Form
- an abstract of the related thesis or paper / poster
- 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.
