 The Euromech series included five scientific meetings: the 6th European Solid Mechanics Conference, the 10th European Mechanics of Materials Conference, the 6th European Fluid Mechanics Conference, the 11th European Turbulence Conference and the 7th European Fluid Mechanics Conference in the corners of a pentagon formed by Budapest, Warsaw, Stockholm, Porto and Manchester.

These conferences were held under the auspices of the European Mechanics Society (EUROMECH), an international non-governmental non-profit scientific organisation. The objective of EUROMECH is to engage in all activities intended to promote in Europe the research and development of mechanics as a branch of physical science and engineering. The goal of the Euromech Series was to offer early stage researchers scientific training on the state-of-the-art in solid and fluid mechanics through plenary lectures and mini-symposia.

By submitting a poster or an oral presentation, they were also given an opportunity to join the European research community in mechanics.

The conferences also provided opportunities for scientists and engineers from all of Europe to discuss their current research. Conferences in the series focussed on general, basic questions in mechanics, a fundamental subject in engineering studies. The target group consisted primarily of PhD students and other early-stage researchers, mechanical and civil engineers in higher education and research institutes. Financial support of the EU was sought in order to reduce expenses for those young scientists, who could not attend the conferences otherwise.
