March 2022


hands-on workshop series

This workshop series aims to introduce early career researchers in materials science to fundamental machine learning concepts, as well as tools and techniques for applying machine learning approaches to their work, including handling and sharing data as well as building machine learning and deep learning models.

These workshops are designed for young researchers in the field of materials science (PhD candidates, postdocs, assistant professors/research associates). Participants at Delft University of Technology, Eindhoven University of Technology and University of Twente are welcome to attend the workshop free of charge. Workshops
will take place online via Zoom.

We invite you and your colleagues to find out more about and register to participate in these workshops:

We're connecting researchers and materials

We are building new types of collaboration and skill sets to help researchers discover new materials. The purpose of our community is to encourage and facilitate an integrated team approach in material science research.  And we can only do this with your help.  

The future is new materials

The discovery of new materials defines the pace of human evolution on this planet.

New advanced materials are at the centre of any major challenges we will be facing in the coming decades.They are essential in all industries to address challenges in clean energy, sustainable production, and human welfare in general.

For the development of clean energy millions of new materials need to be investigated, namely, to discover performant electrocatalysts. If you extrapolate this to materials for solar cells, batteries and thermoelectric materials, it is clear this will be putting huge pressure on materials researchers in the coming years.

Material Pioneers are the new explorers of the world

Discovering new materials is the new way to explore a hidden world, for each element in the periodic table there are hundreds that still needs to be discovered or invented. 

Be part of the community, and explore with us.
