Training school for early-career investigators at ALD Russia 2017

Atomic Layer Deposition Russia 2017

Young scientists from countries and institutions participating in HERALD are welcome to St Petersburg, Russia, on 28 September 2017 to take part in the Training School on Chemical Basis of ALD. Here, reputable scientists from Russia, Europe and North America will speak on fundamental chemical aspects of ALD rarely discussed in application-driven research papers.

Any collaborations with Graphene Flagship?

Here is a request from the COST office:

"From the COST office we are trying to seek for potential collaborations with other relevant EU initiatives that could be of interest for our COST Actions, and for the COST programme in general.

We have identified the Graphene Flagship ( as a very strong one, and we are now exploring different possibilities for collaboration with them.

In order to map those researchers from COST Actions that could be already participating in the Graphene Flagship, I would really appreciate if you could contact your Action participants to ask them: who is already involved in the Flagship, and working at which Work Package.

It will be also very useful to know who of you (or your Action participants) are planning to attend the Graphene Week in Athens, next September 2017."

If you are involved with this Flagship, please email the details to...

HERALD ECI Network event on “Career Development” in Ghent: Registration & Travel Grants

Online registration for the HERALD Early Career Investigator Network event on “Career Development” in Ghent, Belgium is now open. The program of this lunch-to-lunch meeting is designed for ECI’s who have decided to pursue a career in academia and who are or soon will be on their way to full research independency. It comprises invited talks by Prof. Julien Bachmann (Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU)), Prof. Christophe Detavernier (Ghent University), Prof. Erwin Kessels (Eindhoven University of Technology) and Prof. Markku Leskelä (University of Helsinki) and several discussion sessions covering diverse challenges that come with establishing ourselves as a (prospective) research group leader. There will also be opportunities for more informal interaction during lunches and dinner. The program and online registration are available on Please note that the total number of participants is limited to 30. Therefore early registration is recommended.

We are also pleased to announce that the HERALD...

Abstract Deadline: 1st August 2017

The major effort scientific effort worldwide towards the development of novel key enabling material for the emerging technologies of Ubiquitous Society, renewable energy and health requires the development of appropriate characterization tools and methodologies able to work at the nanoscale level. Among the most desirable ones are the optical and x-ray characterization techniques as these are fast and reliable, non-destructive and non-contact methods. Therefore there is a critical need for further development of both optical and x-ray characterization techniques in order to deal with the increasing complexity of the novel key enabling materials down to the nanoscale level. This international symposium is intended to give an overview of the current status...
