Beyond building technical competences and offering potential solutions to societal challenges, during the ten days, the students will learn how to work in teams, how to prepare a business plan, how to be effective in passing key information and how to be successful in pitching. They will transform the way they interact with the job market and they will create opportunities for their future. <br /><br /><div>The school is free of charge for selected students. Moreover, a grant covering travel expenses (up to 300 Euros) and accommodation (managed and paid by the school), will be available to all selected students that meet the reimbursement criteria of the EU H2020 programme.</div> <div><div><br /><span></span></div> <div><a href="" target="_blank">Read more</a><a href=""><span style="display:inline-block"></span></a></div> <br /></div> <div><span><strong>Deadline for application:</strong> <span style="display:inline-block"></span></span>April 30, 2019<br /></div> <div><strong>Date:</strong> July 8-17, 2019<br /></div> <div><strong>Location:</strong> University of Trento, Italy</div> <div><br /></div> <div><a href="" target="_blank"><span style="font-size:18px">Register</span><br /></a></div> <div><a href=""></a><br /></div> Rheology Conference<p>RunAn, conference hall, Chalmersplatsen 1, Kårhuset</p><p>​The conference covers all aspects and areas of rheology. Industrial case studies and academic research papers are both welcome. The aim is to bring together and enhance the exchange of knowledge between researchers, users, application specialists and instrumentation manufacturers in Nordic countries and beyond.</p><div><br /></div> <div>​The NRC2019 highlights the rheology of cellulose systems relating to the use in polymer composites, coatings, paper, pulp, pharmaceuticals, food, etc. The pulp and paper industry is important in the Nordic countries and special attention will therefore be given to this field. Other subjects of special interest for NRC2019 include food, polymeric materials and bio-applications.</div> <div><br /></div> <div><div class="row nrs-highlight-background" style="margin-left:0px"> <div class="row" style="padding-left:10px"> <div class="col-md-5">   April 26, 2019 </div> <div class="col-md-7"> Deadline for submission of abstracts </div> </div> <div class="row" style="padding-left:10px"> <div class="col-md-5">   May 24, 2019 </div> <div class="col-md-7"> Last date for early bird registration fee </div> </div> <div class="row" style="padding-left:10px"> <div class="col-md-5">   June 1, 2019 </div> <div class="col-md-7"> Last date for applying the student travel grant </div> </div> <div class="row" style="padding-left:10px"> <div class="col-md-5">   June 24, 2019 </div> <div class="col-md-7"> Final submission of manuscripts for the Annual Transactions </div> </div> </div> <div class="row nrs-highlight-background" style="margin-left:0px"><br /></div> <div class="row nrs-highlight-background" style="margin-left:0px">For more information and registration: <a href=""></a><br /></div> <br /></div> for Additive Manufacturing Symposium 2019<p>Lecture Hall Palmstedt, university building, Chalmersplatsen 2, Campus Johanneberg</p><p></p>​<span style="background-color:initial">CAM<sup>2</sup> is hosting the Alloys for Additive Manufacturing Symposium 2019 (AAMS2019) on 18-20 September 2019, in a series of Europe-wide Additive Manufacturing workshops and symposiums which began at the Max-Planck Institute in 2016.</span><div>This world-class event covers powder based metal additive manufacturing technologies [AM] which include a metallic phase and is divided into 5 themes:</div> <div><ul><li>Phase transformations in AM-produced alloys<br /></li> <li>Tailored alloys for AM<br /></li> <li>Powder for AM<br /></li> <li>Advances in AM processing<br /></li> <li>Structural control by design​</li></ul> <div><em style="background-color:initial"><br /></em></div> <div><strong><a href="/en/centres/cam2/conferences%20and%20events/Pages/default.aspx"><span><img class="ms-asset-icon ms-rtePosition-4" src="/_layouts/images/ichtm.gif" alt="" />Read more</span> and register​</a> </strong></div> <div><br /></div> <div><div><strong><br /></strong></div> <div><strong>Contact:</strong></div> <div><a href="">Eduard Hryha</a></div> <div> </div> <div>+46 31 772 27 41</div> <div><br /></div> <div><a href="">Jessica Twedmark</a> (concerning booking)</div> <div></div> <div>+46 31 772 63 40</div></div></div> <div><br /></div> for Tomorrow 2019<p>RunAn, conference hall, Chalmersplatsen 1, Kårhuset</p><p>​The 2019 Materials for Tomorrow initiative seminar on Dec 4 will be held back to back with the symposium Light at the Nanoscale: from Molecules to Quantum Computers, taking place Dec 5-6.</p><div><br /></div> Speakers and program will be published here as soon as possible. at the Nanoscale: from Molecules to Quantum Computers<p>RunAn, conference hall, Chalmersplatsen 1, Kårhuset</p><p>​Welcome to a cross-disciplinary symposium on light-matter interactions, organized jointly by Molecular Frontiers, the Nano Excellence Initiative and the Materials Science Area of Advance.
