Multi-scale modelling and characterisation for phase transformations in advanced materials
This is the kick-off meeting for the new Marie Curie Research Training Network on Multi-scale modelling and characterisation for phase transformations in advanced materials (MULTIMAT). Many applications of so-called smart materials are based on changes in their atomic, nano- and microstructure brought about by phase transformations. In order to further develop and apply these materials we need a better and fundamental understanding of the underlying principles of these processes. MULTIMAT aims to continue existing and fruitful collaborations between strong theoretical and experimental research groups active in this exciting and promising field of advanced materials.
The meeting combines introductory courses for PhD students and Postdocs delivered by leading experts in the field with the presentation of the current research of the teams (see programme).
