THIRD TRAINING EVENT, 2-4 OCTOBER, 2019, BUCHAREST

2ND OCTOBER 2019, 10.00-12.00

SCIENTIFIC AND RESEARCH WRITING AND PRESENTATION.

The aim of this school module is to provide support and guidance to fellows for scientific and research writing and presentation. The following aspects will be integrated in a one-day course: (i) writing articles and conference papers; (ii) preparing and presenting a poster; (iii)  resenting to an audience, at a conference or a workshop or in front of a small group. The module will be implemented as a workshop, including writing and presentation exercises.

Responsible: ULB.


2ND OCTOBER 2019, 13.00-17.00

ESRs’work presentation and evaluation.


3RD OF OCTOBER 2019:

Attendance of EV 2019.


4TH OCTOBER 2019, 15.00-16.30:

SPECIAL ISSUES IN ADVANCED TECHNOLOGIES SUSTAINABLE AUTOMOTIVE ELECTRICAL ACTUATION.

During two days the module will give to the participants in three courses a rigorous and in-depth knowledge of the key component technologies in EMs and power electronics, and their integration into advanced systems. New technologies, materials and emerging topologies for more-efficient EMs as well as new trends in semiconductors and special topologies for power converters will be presented and discussed. Finally, systems architectures, requirements analysis, design trade-offs, and reliability through case studies and mathematical techniques will be included in a system integration course. The module will include a research assignment to be completed within three months following the school event.

Responsible:  BROSE.

SECOND TRAINING EVENT, June 2019, at BROSE

Between 12th – 13th June 2019, the 2nd training event took place at BROSE.

AGENDA

12.06.2019  – Advanced design, modelling and analysis methods and tools for automotive electrical actuation  – The goal of the S&T module was provide deeper understanding regarding the different advanced analytical and numerical modelling aspects that the INTERACT’s fellows are concerned with: material modelling for magnetic and structural analysis, losses in EMs, magnetic force computation, Model Order Reduction (MOR) techniques, system-level modelling, etc. The courses  comprised theoretical parts and illustrations by means of the software used by the fellows. Responsible: ULB.

13.06.2019 – Personal development and team working  – The Workshop  provided powerful thinking tools and step-by-step processes for designing executable action plans for strategies at any level. Good knowledge and practice of these techniques enables more efficient work of the fellows during and after completion of the initial research training. The goal of this school was to: (i) train the fellows in management skills, including personal time management, task assignment handling, prioritisation, schedule management, team and meeting leadership etc., and (ii) introduce and practice project management techniques, including project definition and set-up, controlling, risk management and reporting. The FAC encourages using techniques learned here for regular progress reviews. A special session  provided all the necessary details, guidelines, evaluation criteria and measures in order to teach the young researchers how to write successful UE Framework Programs proposals. Responsible: UTCN.

Thursday 17th January 2019

Integrity and ethics in research- Part 1 – Research integrity: On the basis of some institutional landmarks (Declarations of Singapore and European Code of Conduct for Research Integrity), the first part of the training focuses on concrete and strategic issues encountered by researchers at the beginning of their careers. These issues are related to shortcomings with respect to data collection, processing and interpretation, collaboration and publication (when to present results, in what form, issues of authorship and plagiarism, etc.), research funding (conflicts of interests), scientific expertise. Part 2 – Research ethics: The second part of the training is dedicated to research ethics. After a very brief introduction to two major ethical traditions (utilitarianism and deontological ethics), it focuses on practical issues encountered in research, on the basis of the H2020 ethical framework. The topics that will be addressed are the following:  research involving humans, privacy and personal data, research involving animals, non EU countries, environment, health and safety, dual use,  misuse, other ethical issues (neurobiology, human/machine interactions, nanotechnologies, genetic enhancement, artificial intelligence, etc.). Specific attention will be brought to the issues of privacy and personal data, and of dual use/misuse. Presenter: Céline Kermisch (ULB)
