Travel grants awarded for Summer School Material 4.0 at TU Dresden

Materials are complex structures composed of atoms that unfold their technical application potential in the context of industry 4.0 (I4.0). Here, new innovative materials are increasingly needed in addition to classical materials.  These can only be used in industry if their structure is sufficiently characterized. In order to be able to develop materials, however, data sets are required that adequately describe the intrinsic physical, chemical, electrical and specific properties of the material. It is thus very important for material scientists to get to know methods of data-driven material science.

Therefore, Hoang-Thien Luu, member of the Computational Material Science group (Prof. Nina Gunkelmann) and the two master students Ba Van-Tran and Kieu-Anh Doan will visit the Summer School Materials 4.0 at the TU Dresden, which gives an overview of current developments in data-driven materials science including machine learning and modern numerical techniques. We thank the Dresden Center for Computational Materials Science for granting travel scholarships to all 3 SWZ members.
