Scientific days

mardi 18 janvier 2011, par julien

Contrary to many other networks of excellence, PRIME has chosen to support “research activities”. This has entailed a significant number of research projects which can be looked at on the PRIME website. Most started from mid 2004 and the time was ripe for mutual presentation of achievements and results. We have organised 10 thematic sessions of one hour and a half each. 33 presentations were made. The box below shows the 10 sessions. To access the presentations made at these sessions, click here.

An important feature of our scientific days is to hear about the new knowledge produced by “early career researchers” and to reward the most promising ones. We therefore organised, as in
Manchester, a PRIME PhD poster competition. Five posters by “early career researchers” were selected. The winner was Rocio Castrillo from the Autonomous University of Madrid. To access the posters, click here.
