The name of training courses for PhD students I took at the University of Southampton are:
I am taking now two modules:
Training activities at the University of Burgos (UBU) (transversal skills): I have attended several courses from the doctorate school at UBU focusing on the following subjects:
Azores summer school lectures, including:
Training activities were generally related to the equipment used for the research. I have used 3 deposition systems until now. A laboratory unit (Hartec) for magnetron sputtering equipped with 2 cathodes powered by DC-power supplies. A High Impulse Power Magnetron Sputtering power supply was also used. The other laboratory deposition unit used was Edwards E306A with 2 cathodes powered by radio-frequency power supplies. Finally a semi-industrial Teer Coatings UDP 650 deposition unit was used which has 4 cathodes powered by DC power supplies. Training related to usage of X-ray diffraction machine, Nanoindentation, Atomic Force Microscopy, Scratch Testing and Unidirectional and Reciprocating pin on disk equipment was also attended.
I also attended the summer school at Terceira Islands, Azores which was organized from the consortium.
Additionally the coursed related to the PhD program at University of Coimbra for the first year of study were passed.
Due to the very limited time Mr. Mathioudakis has been working for the project, he hasn’t yet had any training activity such as summer schools or training units organized by the project’s consortium.
Aleksandra Lelevic participated in Training Units 1, 2, 3 of the project, which were organized by the consortium. Training Unit 1 was held in Prague in January 2018 and Traning Units 2 & 3 took place in Terceira island, Azores in July 2018. Furthermore, she attended the EU Pulse Plating Seminar held in Vienna on March 2018 and also a series of lectures conducted by ARTIA Nano‒Engineering and Consulting in its facilities at Peristeri. The lectures where given by Mr. Thanos Karvounis and were aimed to train the participants in innovation managment. Moreover the ESR was trained by Artia as follows. Full in house training in:
Based on my relevant experience from my master’s degree I had already acquired a good extent of training on the experimental facilities needed to implement my PhD in Patras. Additional training I received during my first months of research work at FORTH/ICE-HT is summarized as follows:
