Materials Chain Early Career Researchers´ Forum

The first Materials Chain Early Career Researchers´ Forum took place at TU Dortmund University’s international meeting center IBZ on September 16, 2019.

The Materials Chain Early Career Researchers’ Forum was aimed specifically at scientists at an early stage of their careers to give the approximately 1,000 doctoral students, postdocs, working group leaders and junior professors from the research groups associated with the Materials Chain the opportunity to benefit from the Materials Chain Network at an early stage.

The forum stimulated scientific exchange amongst the early career researchers and gave an overview of funding possibilities generally available for early career scientists.
