The EPCIA, the European Passive Components Industry Association, in cooperation with ECPE European Center for Power Electronics e.V. is pleased to announced its EPCIA Student Award in the field of passive components.
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 jointly presented by the European Passive Component Industry Association (EPCIA) and the European Center for Power Electronics (ECPE).
Each Award is granted with € 1,000, subject to the provision that it may be split amongst more than one applicant.
