The EFFIPRO Project, which is being part funded by the EU (FP7), was launched on the 1st September 2013. The objectives of this 3 year project are to develop a significantly shorter PM process using a new concept of hybrid electrical current assisted sintering, and hard materials with improved properties, thus resulting in a more energy efficient and cost effective process.

The first meeting was hosted by the Project Manager (Dr. Iñigo Agote) at Tecnalia in San Sebastian, Spain.
