120 participants at intense centre day

Around 120 participants from the academic and business worlds got together on the joint day for Chalmers excellence centres ChaseOn and GigaHertz Centre in Palmstedtsalen on 14 November. Specially invited key note speaker was Bram Nauta, Professor at the University of Twente.

Center chairs Jan Grahn, Professor of Microwave Technology at MC2, and Erik Ström, Professor of Communications Systems at the Department of Electrical Engineering – E2, for the day replaced by
vice chair Marianna Ivashina, professor of Electromagnetic Design of Antenna Systems, invited to a full and intense day.
"We are two centers with quite different orientations, yet benefiting from each other in this consortium. It is interesting to see and hear about each other's research, and to gather it on a common day", says Jan Grahn.

On the agenda there were presentations of ongoing research collaborations between Chalmers and the business community in microwave technology and antenna systems, currently nine projects, and plenty of opportunities to network and connect with new contacts. The centres' joint international advisory council and steering board were also be present during the day.
The day ended with a gala dinner at the restaurant Hyllan in the student union building.
