The EU steel industry has undergone a long period of crisis since 2008 with the consequent reduction in production, capacity and restructuring and it is still experiencing a rapid evolution, both in terms of its business and management structures and from a technological point of view too. Such developments have implications for the steel market as well as the production cycle. In order to successfully manage these developments, operatives need to possess analytical and managerial skills, supported by a deep knowledge of the industry. They need to understand and address the technology driven operational and organisational changes taking place within their companies. This is essential to allow the middle management to be actively involved in the implementation of company policies and to shape and contribute positively to on-going developments.
The 2016 Eurosteelmaster is aimed at managers, technical staff, researchers, trade unionists and other professionals operating in the steel industry and in closely related areas.
Participants should possess a university degree or equivalent experience.
The course is organized by CSM with the support of European Commission, EUROFER, industriAll, Federacciai, ESTEP – European Steel Technology Platform.
After registration, each participant will receive an official confirmation.

To improve air quality in cities, the challenge set for this €3 million prize is to develop an innovative and well-designed material solution that will reduce the concentration of particulate matter in the air.
Why this Prize?
Particulate matter (PM) is the air pollutant which has the most severe impact on health.
Currently, around 90% of the population of European cities for which PM data exist is exposed to levels exceeding WHO air quality guidelines levels.
Average life expectancy in the European Union is estimated to be 8.6 months lower due to exposure to particulate matter resulting from human activities. The inhalation of particulate matter can lead to asthma, lung cancer, cardiovascular and respiratory diseases, birth defects, and premature death.
In addition to its impact on human health, particulate matter can also have adverse effects on climate change and ecosystems.
Materials.it 2016 sarà la prima conferenza nazionale italiana sulle ‘scienze e tecnologie dei materiali’. Si terrà dal 12 al 16 dicembre 2016 a Catania. La conferenza rappresenta un'importante opportunità di incontro per la grande comunità degli scienziati coinvolti nello studio della scienza dei materiali e relative applicazioni, provenienti da università e istituti di ricerca. Questa prima edizione è promossa dai Dipartimenti di scienze fisiche e tecnologie della materia (Dsfm) e di scienze chimiche e tecnologie dei materiali (Dsctm) del Consiglio nazionale delle ricerche (Cnr) con il supporto dell'Istituto italiano di tecnologia (Iit), dell'Agenzia nazionale per le nuove tecnologie, l'energia e lo sviluppo economico sostenibile (Enea), dal Consorzio nazionale interuniversitario per le scienze fisiche della materia (Cnism) e dal Consorzio interuniversitario nazionale per la scienza e tecnologia dei materiali (Instm).
