Associazione Italiana di Metallurgia (AIM)
The first provisional statute of the Associazione Italiana di Metallurgia (AIM), founded in January 1946, a non- profit, cultural society, that has as an objective the dissemination of science and technology related to metals and others materials for engineering. The evolution of the traditional materials and the development of their processes, production techniques and technologies demand a constant and valid updating on behalf of those who study and work with materials. Scope of the Association is to foster, through its activities, the exchange of ideas and experiences among those who are interested in the development and progress of the metallic material field, with particular emphasis in the promotion of meetings for producers, users and researchers.
The AIM, founded in January 1946, is a non-profit cultural body, aimed at spreading the science and technology of metallic materials and other materials for engineering. The evolution of traditional materials, the development of advanced materials, techniques and production technologies require constant and valid updating by those who study and work the materials. The purpose of the association is to promote, through its activities, exchanges of ideas and experiences among all those interested in the development and deepening of knowledge in the field of metallic materials with particular regard to the promotion of meetings between producers, users and researchers.
Originally founded in 1953 the study group has been reactivated in 1999. It's purpose is the study of ancient procedures and artefacts (from ore to finished work) without limitation of age and origin, with the aim of serving archaeology and metallurgy.
