International Network Meeting of the European School of Materials

The 2nd International Network Meeting of the European School of Materials includes a series of events that will take place from November 11th to November 15th 2019 at Saarland University. The overall goal is the networking between former and current students and researchers from the Materials Science Department, from the EUSMAT programs as well as from our partner universities. The second meeting should give a further impulse to the Materials Science and Engineering Chapter of the University Association, that was inaugurated during the 1st meeting done in 2017 and should help establishing and keeping the contact with former students and researchers of our department.

The following activities are planned:

  • Alumni-Meeting: on November 11th and November 12th takes place the Alumni Meeting, and with students and professors of our department. The participants will have the chance to present their own current activities, which will serve as an impulse for discussions towards possible cooperation activities.
  • Workshop on Microstructure Analysis: on November 12th and November 13th prominent researchers in the field of 3D-materials characterization have been invited to give several input talks for the discussions of the different topics among all participants.
  • Workshop on International Research Funding and Innovation Workshop: In a first block, experts will report on the various possibilities for project funding and application in an international context. The presentations will be tailored to the countries of origin of the participants. In a second part, concrete ideas of the participants will be discussed in a workshop and elaborated with regard to concrete projects. Innovation and transfer activities will be the focus of the workshop.
