MSCA fellow at EuroScience Open Forum in Manchester

What does a MSCA fellow do at a forum on the future of science? What happens when more than one MSCA fellow come in the same place? Well, this is exactly what MSCA ESOF satellite event in Manchester allowed. During 2 days in July (28-29.07.2016) the main idea was to analyze the relationship between research Read more about MSCA fellow at EuroScience Open Forum in Manchester[…]

ITER on the local newspaper: heat from the ground

Newspaper’s article about ITER Project ITER appeared on Erlangen local newspaper Erlangen Nachrichten on April 27, 2016. Due to the increased interest about using renewable energy for heating/cooling houses, there is a greater curiosity about what is shallow geothermal energy. It is not really clear how is possible to use the heat from the ground. Read more about ITER on the local newspaper: heat from the ground[…]
