COST Action TU0905 organizes ESR event at EPFL (ICOM)

The COST Action TU0905 organizes an Early Stage Researcher (ESR) Workshop & Networking Event, which will be held 3-5 February 2014 at EPFL.

This event is especially intended for PhD students in the field of structural glass.   

The event aims to enhance the knowledge of Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) on the numerical modelling of glass components and to create a strong ESR network. The event includes a workshop on numerical modelling with hands-on exercises, a scientific visit to CERN in Geneva and an excursion to a glass processing company.

For the workshop there are 25 places available, which will be attributed after a selection procedure based on CV, publication-list and participation in the COST Action TU0905 Final Conference. Furthermore, 15 Grants of Euro 400,- and 10 Grants of Euro 150,- will be provided by the COST Action TU0905 to successful applicants.

To apply for the workshop please fill the online application form before the application deadline of December 1st 2013.
