In addition, the scholarship winner will have the chance to present his/her project at the 53rd Congress of the Italian Paper Industry (2022).
Studies related to innovations or production improvements in terms of product quality, process efficiency or cost reduction through plant, process or management modifications will be evaluated, as well as studies that bring new knowledge in economic and regulatory field. A list of the topics of major interest to the paper industry is published at www.aticelca.it.
“RDM Group believes in the new generations and for this reason the Group are committed to the valorization of talents and skills” is the statement of Michele Bianchi, RDM Group CEO, who also said he was proud to be able to combine the initiative with the long and honored career of Mr. Culicchi, a man who was able to inspire many talents and young promises today at the head of important roles in the world paper industry.
As a matter of fact, the goal of the Award is to increase the interest of young people, both undergraduates and graduates, in the disciplines and issues related to the paper industry to collect and spread scientific and technological material on paper and board production processes.
