A Synergetic Training network on Energy Beam Processing: from modelling to industrial applications
The University of Nottingham


The STEEP project is a Marie Curie Initial Training Network aimed to develop researchers in  field of energy beam processing (pulsed laser ablation, abrasive waterjet and focussed ion beam). This involves both multi-disciplinary scientific training, secondments in both academia and industry and tailored courses in complementary skills.

Cutting edge research questions are addressed in STEEP in the areas of:

  • materials processing
  • mathematical modelling
  • simulation and control
  • materials analysis

Academic and industrial partners from 11 European countries form the STEEP consortium, which is led by the  Machining and Condition Monitoring (MCM) team at The University of Nottingham.




STEEP is part of the EU Seventh Framework Programme Marie-Curie Actions (Initial Training Networks), project 316560
