Call for workshops in 2019

The COST Action MP1402 ends in December 2018 but the HERALD network is going to continue into 2019.  HERALD is offering modest financial support for the organisation of scientific workshops taking place in the period March-December 2019.  As with previous HERALD events, the typical grant for one event would be €5,000, but smaller and larger amounts will also be possible.  The grant should be used to cover bona fide costs that support HERALD's goals of collaboration, cohesion and career development, but otherwise there are no restrictions on eligible expenses.  The event can take place in any country worldwide and the applicant can be any member of HERALD worldwide (or can become a member in order to apply).  Completed applications using the enclosed form should be submitted by the deadline of 13 November 2018 to the HERALD Chair, who will pass them on to the soon-to-be-elected Grant Committee to select workshops for funding.

2nd call for registration: 3rd ECI workshop: Science communication and mapping a future road for ECIs

2nd call for registration: 3rd ECI workshop: Science communication and mapping a future road for ECIs

Dear All, 

We are announcing the third call for the “3rd ECI workshop: Science communication and mapping a future road for ECIs”, that will be held 8th–9th November 2018 at the Institute of Electrical Engineering Slovak Academy of Science, Bratislava, Slovakia.

The workshop will be dedicated to early career investigators (Ph.D., postdocs, young professors) within the framework of the COST Action HERALD (Hooking together European Research in Atomic Layer Deposition).

We developed an engaging program for this workshop with a goal to bring you all together and discuss the future road for ECIs in European ALD research, provide training for efficient and effective networking, and explore the possibilities for widening and continuation of the ECI network.

The workshop will cover two days with a very vibrant and interactive program. For the first day, we invited the brightest scientists Dr. Simon...
