Don’t miss this chance to network with colleagues from the materials science scene in Switzerland.
CCMX and the NCCR MARVEL are co-organizing their second Materials Science day, featuring both experimental and modelling approaches to current challenges in materials science.
The morning will be dedicated to projects involving modelling and first experimental validation. During the afternoon, the five CCMX Materials Challenges will present their research on topics ranging from coatings to additive manufacturing, from fiber science to nanoparticles and 2D materials.
The talks will give participants an excellent introduction to pre-competitive research going on throughout the country while the poster sessions, lunch and coffee breaks will give the chance to speak to researchers one-on-one, make new contacts and initiate collaborations. We hope you will take advantage of this unique opportunity and join us!
Participation is free of charge, but for organizational purposes, please register using the form found online here by Friday 28 September, 2018.
