MSGSD 2014

Here is a short report from two days packed with interesting talks by graduate students and invited speakers

On February 26th and 27th, around 60 PhD students from the graduate school of Materials Science came together in the Virtual Development Laboratory at Chalmers for the second edition of the Materials Science Graduate Student Days (MSGSD). The two days were filled with invited and popular science talks, a tour at the labs of Materials and Manufacturing Technology, poster sessions, and mingling at lunches, coffee breaks, and a conference dinner at the restaurant Hyllan.

The first day started with a talk by Mats Lundin, VD of Swerea IVF who presented the research and organisation in one of Sweden’s largest materials science research institutes.  This theme was continued during the MSGSD by talks of  the research institute representatives Boel Wadman (IVF), Claes Tullin (SP), and Camilla Öhgren (SIK) giving an impression of both personal careers and research highlights. 

Throughout the Materials Science Graduate Student Days, PhD students gave insights in their research by popular science posters and oral presentations showing the broad range of research areas in the graduate school of Materials Science.  A tour in the labs of the department of Materials and Manufacturing  Technology gave a chance to get an excellent overview over the variety of equipment and research conducted in the department.
