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. The registration deadline is Friday 28 September, 2018.
If you would like to present a poster on your MARVEL research, please inform Pascale Van Landuyt as soon as possible.
The deadline for submitting a short abstract, with the title of the poster, the authors and their respective affiliations is Thursday 27 September, 2018. The abstract will need to be sent by email to Carey Sargent (CCMX) and to Pascale Van Landuyt (MARVEL).
