The final meeting of the projects IDS-FunMat and EJD-FunMat will be held in Bordeaux on 21-22 March 2019. 

At the same time, we will be celebrating the the 15th anniversary of the network EMMI (European Multifunctional Materials Institute), and the 12th anniversary of the FAME-Master project financed by ERASMUS MUNDUS and ERASMUS+.

The EMMI network has its origins in the Network of Excellence FAME which started in 2004. Since then, EMMI has initiated many EU projects and collaborations. One of the first was the ERASMUS MUNDUS Master programme FAME-Master, which also started in 2007 and recently obtained renewal funding for the 3rd time.

Over 2 days, the meeting will include reports from former Master and PhD students, several lectures for the general public, discussions of hot topics in materials science, and hopefully the initiation of new European projects from the EMMI community.

One highlight will be a presentation from Donna Strickland, University of Waterloo, Winner of the Nobel Prize in Physics 2018.

See you in Bordeaux !
