The Annual GEC Scientific Meeting is an event dedicated to discussions between engineering researchers at the Univ. of Groningen with the purpose of facilitating new cutting-edge joint projects and initiatives.
The first edition, which took place on 30 Jan. and gathered more than 120 participants, achieved this goal. It offered ample opportunities for discussions during the poster session that advertised the research conducted by 4th year PhD students from ENTEG, JBI, UMCG, KVI-CART, ZIAM, GBB, and during the networking breaks. The keynote lecture “
Societal impact of science: are there best practices?
” of Prof. Jaap Schouten, chair of the NWO Applied and Engineering Sciences domain, stimulated lively interaction with the audience. A round table session resulted in constructive feedback on projects and questions pitched by researchers in chemical engineering, nuclear physics, nanotechnology, biophysics, biopharmacy, mechatronics, systems, control and applied analysis. The event ended with an Award Ceremony during which Charissa Roossien (MSc) received the GEC Best PhD Poster Award for the project “Monitoring physical workload” and Dr. Ir. Laurens Polgar received the GEC Best PhD Thesis Award for his study of “Thermoreversible cross-linking of rubber: new approaches towards an old problem.”
Thank you for your participation and we are looking forward to seeing you again next year!
