2017 MCAA Conference and General Assembly


2017 MCAA Conference and General Assembly

Three SELECTA ESRs (early stage researchers), Evangelia Dislaki (UAB), Mónica Fernández (IFW) and Sundararajan Thirumalai (UCAM), participated in the “2017 MCAA Conference and General Assembly” which was held on 24-25 March 2017 in Salamanca, Spain. This event was organized by the University of Salamanca, in cooperation with the MCAA Spain/Portugal Chapter, and the program covered the main areas of interests of the MCAA members in terms of career, networking and societal challenges. The participants also actively contributed in the poster session. Evangelia Dislaki presented a poster entitled: “Growth of sustainable, rare-earth- and noble-metal-free metallic coatings via electrodeposition” and Mónica Fernández presented a poster entitled: “Electrodeposition of manganese layers from aqueous electrolytes”. These two ESRs were also asked to record a brief video to encourage people to apply for Marie Curie actions. Further information about the activities of the event is provided below: “2017 MCAA Conference and General Assembly Program”.

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.
