INTERNATIONAL DOCTORAL SCHOOL "CORROSION: FROM ANALYSIS TO MODELLING" AT SURF RESEARCH GROUP BIG SUCCESS
Monday, 20 February, 2017 - 15:56
For the fourth year in a row, the SURF research group organized a doctoral school “Corrosion: from analysis to modelling”. The doctoral school took place at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel from 6th of February till 10th of February and was a big success.
We attracted more than 20 Phd students from all over the world. Furthermore, for the first time, the doctoral school was also accessible for industrial researchers. Each day, a different topic was handled: electrochemical impedance spectroscopy, complementary analysis techniques in corrosion science, local electrochemical techniques and modelling of corrosion phenomena. The lectures were provided by in-house experts, in collaboration with the Technical University of Delft and the University of Antwerp.
Feedback from the participants:
“Well organized with a high level of knowledge of the lecturers.”
“This training has been the best I’ve ever been on.”
“Very good research presented by SURF PhD students and professors, including nice insights to new research results.”
“I was happy with the fact that the context of most of the presentations were not heavy and very accessible even for some of us that are not so familiar with the work. I particularly understood even more about the problematic related to my own work.”
“With respect to impedance spectroscopy, previous lectures were a little complicated since they involved a lot of mathematical equations and less physical aspects. But at this doctoral school, the lecturers succeeded on matching a mathematical equation to physical aspects. ”
