The SELECTA winter school entitled “Gateway to industry: Introducing materials to market. Practical aspects” will be held on 7-12 January 2017 at UCAM (University of Cambridge), United Kingdom. All the ESRs of the network will attend several scientific lectures and training in soft skills will be provided. The ESRs will be trained on interview skills to prepare them to face future job interviews. Another training activity, which will be optional, will be the preparation by the ESRs of a 3-4 minutes showcase video on each particular PhD topic. These videos will be prepared in advance, they will be projected during the event and afterwards they will be used to disseminate the SELECTA outcome. The senior researcher will also participate in the winter school activities and they will gather together to discuss several management issues of the network during the management session. See below the procedure required to book the accommodation of the participants and a preliminary agenda. Information on how to pay the registration fees will be available soon.
