1st Price at the student speech contest of the European Ceramic Society

Maximilian Staudacher has won the bi-annual student speech contest of the European Ceramic Society (ECerS). This contest took place during the “14th Ecers Conference for Young Scientists in Ceramics” from 20.-23.10.2021 in Novi Sad, Serbia. With his presentation titled „The Ball-on-Three-Balls-Test: Comparison with the Ring-on-Ring-Test for Ceramics “, he managed to outperform 18 other candidates. In order to qualify for this contest, each contestant had to win their respective national contests, which Maximilian Staudacher did at the Austrian student speech contest in March 2021. Currently, he is a PhD-Student at the Chair of structural- and functional ceramics and is working on testing methods for additive manufactured specimens or specimens with exceptional geometries. By winning this international competition, he will have the opportunity to perform as an invited speaker at the 17th Conference of the ECerS titled “Ceramics in Europe 2022” from 10.-14.7.2022 in Krakow, Poland, which is the most important European conference within the ceramic field.

Congratulations to Maximilian Staudacher on this phenomenal success!
