SPP 2170 "InterZell" Events & PhD Program

Schedule for InterZell events and the associated PhD program

"InterZell" wants to promote the networking of engineers and natural scientists, supported by the coordinator and his assistent. Interactions between engineering and natural sciences on the one hand and the connection of theory and experiment on the other hand are both important. Therefore, networking events, summer schools and status seminars offer a good basis.

The iCollege "InterZell" takes place on a monthly basis and is ongoing. The main aspect is peer-to-peer learning and networking between all projects, and is design for the needs of the PhD students. Please find the iCollege program here.

We are happy that each of our PhD students is an active part of our iCollege. This is a great opportunity to share new methods, talk about our work in the lab, exchange scientific opinions or discuss a problem. Welcome "InterZell" PhD Students to the iCollege!  We have already had 18 exciting lectures and learned about new methods. And there are more to come.

The Kickoff 2020 was our first networking event. It took place in Stuttgart. All project partners presented their upcoming research, milestones and further research work.
