2nd SELECTA Workshop organized by IFW (Germany)


2nd SELECTA Workshop organized by IFW (Germany)

The SELECTA Workshop entitled: “Training on research methodologies, characterization techniques and reporting scientific results” was held on 6-10 March 2016 at IFW (Leibniz Institute for Solid State and Materials Research), Dresden, Germany. During the Workshop the ESRs (Early Stage Researchers) presented their project progress and their future plans in talks of 20 min duration.  They also attended training lectures on the following scientific topics: (i) structural characterization of materials: diffraction/imaging techniques, (ii) mechanical behavior of electrodeposited films and micro/nanostructures, (iii) corrosion and wear resistance of electrodeposited metallic coatings, (iv) tribocorrosion and (v) nanomagnetism and spintronic devices. Besides, training on how to deliver “effective oral presentations” was also provided to the ESRs. The knowledge acquired by the ESRs was evaluated at the end of the meeting. The successful completion of the Workshop was awarded with 2 credits as “mandatory training” and 1 credit as “training is soft skills”. In turn, the senior researchers discussed several important aspects concerning the management of the network: (i) secondments implementation, (ii) dissemination of the project, (iii) consortium management, (iv) financial distribution and (iv) scientific projects.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement No 642642


SELECTA is a highly interdisciplinary initiative which has the primary goal of training young researchers in the field of smart electrodeposited metallic alloys suitable for environmental / sustainable development applications.



SELECTA project is a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network that offers the possibility to pursue the PhD within the Network at different research centers.15 PhD positions are funded by the European Community under Horizon 2020 




SELECTA seeks to achieve the target purposes using a sustainable approach, designing alloy compositions without/with minimum amounts of scarce or toxic elements, while employing environmentally-friendly, minimally invasive electrolytic baths.
