Dear scientists,


It is our great pleasure to announce the second graduate course of the Materials-Driven Regeneration (MDR) Gravitation program. The course is geared towards PostDocs and PhD students working on MDR- or related projects and are from an MDR-affiliated institute. It will provide an excellent opportunity for our early-stage researchers to get exposed to research performed within the three main MDR institutions, and special seminars and career advice (academic and non-academic) sessions will be organized for our more senior researchers. Above all, we offer hands-on workshops in different areas (image processing, mechanical testing, computational modelling etc.)

The preliminary program can be found here:


After you registered, a follow-up email will be sent in March to sign up for specific hands-on workshops and sessions that will be offered in parallel.
