Announcing the First Biennial NETZSCH YOUNG SCIENTIST AWARD at ITCC ITES 2022

The ITCC ITES 2022 conference recognizes contributions to the state-of-the-art in thermophysics with an international award. Following the motto “supporting the youth to bring a better future”, we are excited to announce the first biennial Young Scientists Award to be presented at the ITCC ITES conferences.

NETZSCH is the organizer of this years´ ITCC ITES joint conference. Due to the ongoing global pandemic, the ITCC ITES Conference has been rescheduled and is now taking place September 25-28, 2022 at the University of Massachusetts Lowell Inn and Conference Center in Lowell Massachusetts.

This premier conference series has a long history and has served since decades as an excellent forum for engineers, researchers, and program/project managers from industry, academia, and government labs to exchange and share the latest results in research and development. This conference will feature thermal conductivity and thermal expansion topics, as well as all thermophysical properties for materials, techniques, and applications.
