Learning Week I: Academic skills and advanced topics in CAD
September 6 - September 10
The first Learning Week will take place in Barcelona from September 6 to 10, 2021. If the pandemic permits, it will be a physical event. Otherwise, we will adopt a hybrid (physical and online) or strictly online format.
The Event will be co-organised with the Barcelona Graduate School of Mathematics (BGSMath) and the University of Strathclyde. It aims to help ESRs develop complementary and transferable skills in Academia. Topics to be covered include communication/presentation to diverse audiences, Fund-raising and Proposal writing, and Knowledge Transfer Basics. These sessions will often include hands-on activities.
The event will include a 2-day scientific workshop with courses on advanced topics of CAD. Confirmed speakers include Sandra Di Rocco (KTH), Denys Plakhotnik (ModuleWorks), Christian Arber (Topsolid), Michael Floater (U. Oslo), Tamás Várady (Budapest U. of Technology and Economics) and Jiri Kosinka (U. Groningen). More information will be announced soon.
