Bordeaux, 21-22 March 2019.
The EMMI network has its origins in the Network of Excellence FAME which started in 2004.
Since then, EMMI has initiated many EU projects and collaborations. The first of them was the ERASMUS MUNDUS Master programme FAME-Master, which started in 2007 and recently obtained renewal funding for the 3rd time.
Another flagship project was the Doctoral School IDS-FunMat, and its successor EJD-FunMat. Both projects will end in 2019.
Thus we will celebrate in a special meeting next march the anniversaries of EMMI and FAME-Master, and hold at the same time the final meeting of the projects IDS-FunMat and EJD-FunMat.
Over 2 days, the meeting will include reports from former Master and PhD students, several lectures for the general public, discussions of hot topics in materials science, and hopefully the initiation of new European projects from the EMMI community.
One highlight will be a presentation from Donna Strickland, University of Waterloo, Winner of the Nobel Prize in Physics 2018.
See you in Bordeaux!
