Three SELECTA ESRs, namely Aliona Nicolenco (VU), Antonio Mulone (CHALMERS) and Mónica Fernández (IFW), participated in the “Open Readings 2017” (60th international conference for students of physics and natural sciences) which took place in Vilnius on 14-17 March 2017. This meeting was intended as an international academic platform for young researchers from all over the world to present their ongoing research results in the fields of physics and natural sciences. Each of the three ESRs presented a poster showing their latest results obtained within the framework of the SELECTA network (see below). In addition, they took the opportunity to discuss, learn, share their scientific experience and attend lectures provided by top-class experts of the field such as: John Ellis, Ben Feringa (Nobel prize winner in chemistry 2016), Naomi Halas, etc. To get further details on the activities of the event see below: “Open Readings 2017 program”.
