4TU.High-Tech Materials

The Dutch 4TU.Research Centre High-Tech Materials (4TU.HTM) in collaboration with the three Dutch materials research schools 

is organizing a Smart Materials Summer School for PhD students. The workshop will be held on the island of Ameland between May 29th (arrival May 28th) and June 2nd, 2017.

Scope

Smart materials is a term usually employed to describe materials that can respond to various external stimuli, such as temperature, light or electric field in a predictable and reversible fashion. The purpose of this summer school is to provide an overview on different classes of stimuli-responsive materials, ranging from temperature-sensitive polymers, hydrogels to ceramics, laser-switchable magnets and biological matter.

The workshop will consist of lectures and additional discussions. Active participation by the PhD students is expected, including the obligatory presentation of a poster about their own research. The lecturers are explicitly asked to give tutorial presentations with emphasis on a basic understanding of their subjects, which culminate with their views on the present day state-of-the-art and challenges of their specific topics.
