26-29 January 2021

The University of Luxembourg together with the University of Limerick and the Bernal Institute will host a winter workshop on manufacturing, mechanics and characterisation of advanced engineering materials on January 26 to 29 January 2021. The workshop is in the frame of the H2020 DRIVEN European project with the aim to boost the scientific excellence and technology-transfer capacity in data-driven simulation of the University of Luxembourg.


The workshop will provide the latest insights on the manufacturing, modelling, and identification of advanced materials and structures.  Topics will range from the testing of laser joining, the modelling of melt instabilities, the identification of random input fields of mechanical parameters, multiscale methods for metallic lattices created by additive manufacturing to the manufacturing, modelling and mechanical testing of composite materials.


The workshop is tailored to PhD students.

Two companies will present their latest developments.   There will be short sessions on intellectual property, Marie Curie fellowships and life after PhD.   Student participants will present their PhD work in five-minute presentations using three slides to compete for the Perfect Pitch Award (€600,- for the first price, €300,- for the second price and €100,- for the first price).

Virtual or in-person

The workshop will be held online. However, participants can attend the online workshop from a lecture room at the University of Luxembourg where coffee and lunch will be served –  according to the covid19 guidelines of that moment. A method to verify attendance will be formulated.   All participants will receive a certificate of participation.

Registration is free,
