Summer school sucess

Young scientists and engineers have wrapped up their three-day course on the nature and structure, processing, properties and applications of composite materials at IMDEA Materials Institute in Getafe (Spain).

14 students from ATG Europe B.V, University of Castilla la Mancha, Wroclaw University of Technology, Coventry University, Ideko S.Coop and IMDEA Materials Institute attended daily lectures by leading scientists from academia and industry. In the afternoons, the students were given practical lessons on the processing on composites and modeling.

The summer school on composite materials was supported by the DYNACOMP project, as part of the training of the 2 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) of the network.
