ICMAB, 6 FEB 2020: Welcome Day of the DOC-FAM PhD Fellows (2nd Call)

On Thursday, 6 February 2020, the Welcome Day for the COFUND MSCA Doctoral Training Programme on Functional Advanced Materials "DOC-FAM" PhD Fellows (2nd Call) will take place at ICMAB (9:15 am). The Welcome Day is aimed to present the project and introduce the second call PhD fellows and their projects. In this second call, the projects are being carried out at ICMAB-CSIC, ICN2, IMB-CNM-CSIC, IREC and ALBA Synchrotron. 

17 January 2020
In total, counting the first and second call, the DOC-FAM programm is enabling 22 early stage researchers (ESR) to conduct their PhD in the field of "Advanced Functional Materials" in these outstanding research institutions. The DOC-FAM program, coordinated by the ICMAB, is the first MSCA COFUND coordinated by a CSIC center.

The Welcome Day will start with a brief presentation of each institution that participate in the project, followed by a presentation of the programme by its Project Manager, Laura Cabana. After the coffee break, the PhD fellows of this second call will give some flash talks about their research group, the objectives of their PhD thesis and the Career Development Plan of their project. 

The objectives of the meeting are to:

  • Welcome the second call PhD fellows of the DOC-FAM project
  • Introduce the PhD fellows and encourage the networking between them
  • Increase the networking and collaboration between the host institutions
