The Armourers and Brasiers’ Cambridge Forum


The Armourers and Brasiers’ Cambridge Forum

On 14th June 2016, several members of the SELECTA network participated at the “Armourers and Brasiers’ Cambridge Forum”. Prof. Jordi Sort from UAB (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona) delivered an invited lecture entitled “Nanoporous materials for magnetism and spintronics applications”. Prof. Lindsay Greer from University of Cambridge was the chair of the session. Besides, the ESRs from University of Cambridge, Wilhelm Hüttenes, Samer Kurdi and Sundararajan Thirumalai, presented a poster with their latest research results. The event, which was held in the Pippard Lecture Theatre at the Cavendish Laboratory on the University of Cambridge's West Cambridge Site,is a one-day international conference held annually at the University of Cambridge.  The programme is devised by the universityDepartment of Materials Science and Metallurgywhich has strong links with the Armourers and Brasiers' Company and it brings together leading Materials Scientists from universities and industry.

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.
