Han-sur-Lesse Winterschool
Physical Chemistry

The 30th Han-sur-Lesse Winterschool will take place from 10 - 14 February 2020.
Max. 40 participants - Register here!

The Han-sur-Lesse winterschool for physical chemistry has a long tradition to train PhD/PostDoc students of the Netherlands in the basics of static and dynamical aspects of Colloidal, Soft matter, Biophysics, Material science theory and applications. Every year at the end of January or early February up to 35 students come to the Belgian Ardennes town of Han-sur-Lesse to learn from distinguished senior scientists from across Dutch universities such as Technical University Delft, University of Amsterdam, Free University of Amsterdam, University of Utrecht, Twente University, Technical University Eindhoven, Leiden University, and Wageningen University.A series of lectures with a common theme is presented with alternating emphasis on Equilibrium  and Dynamical aspects. Because of this alternating selection of topics we encourage all PhD students to enroll in two consecutive year. Topics vary, but typically one can expect to learn about: statistical thermodynamics, computer simulations, scattering techniques, wetting phenomena, colloid assemblies, liquid crystals, (non-equilibrium) thermodynamics, polymer theory, rheology, forces in biology. We expect that the applicants have an MSc- entry level in physical chemistry or comparable study.eywords that characterize this school are: state of the art lectures; problem solving; personal coaching; relaxed atmosphere, nature hikes, excellent food (also for vegetarians), socializing drinks, organized transportation from/to Utrecht central station.

Winter School of Metallurgia - Metal Additive Manufacturing

University of Trento, 26-29 January 2020

The Metallurgy Winter School on Additive Manufacturing aims at providing a deep understanding of fundamentals of metal additive manufacturing, with a particular focus on the metallurgical aspects known to determine the performance of AM products.

After a brief overview of the various processes and metals for AM and an analysis of the market, the various aspects related to the quality of the powders, the types of alloys for AM and how to design dedicated ones will be explained. Subsequently, the different AM processes, microstructures, and possible defects will be treated, highlighting how they are created durinAM processing.

Additionally, the various heat and finishing treatments aimed at improving the performance of AM products will be presented.

Modeling and simulation of additive manufacturing will also be treated and the attendees will be invited to analyze case studies, with practical use of available software.A visit to an AM facility will allow the participants to enter in the practical aspects of AM technology.

The school is addressed mainly to PhD students, but post-docs and master students are also welcome.
