15th ECR Workshop - “Building bridges” across faculties and institutes

08 June 2023

MAPEX and the MAPEX Doctoral Qualification Programme organised the 15th ECR Workshop on June 8 2023, under the motto 'Building bridges across faculties and institutes'. The focus was to provide Early Career Researchers an opportunity to come into contact with ECR peers from across the STEM fields.

Three interesting ECI talks by Dr. Paul Benjamin Klar, Dr.-Ing. Ingmar Bösing and Dr.-Ing. Anastasiya Tönjes showed the importance and variety of different approaches to materials research. This has only been exceeded and surpassed by two inspiring MAPEX PI talks by Prof. Dr. Gordon Callsen and Prof. Dr. Andreas Rademacher, demonstrating deep insights into their scientific work and their career trajectory to a proffessorship at the University of Bremen.

ECRs submitted their academic projects by presenting scientific posters and discussing their work with collegues ECR peer from different disciplines at the workshop.

In addition we had the opportunity to learn more about the various possibilities of open access publishing, provided and promoted by the State- and University Library Bremen (SuUB) as also about the different and comprehensive services offered by the Data Science Center.

The future of Materials Science and Engineering: How to participate and get the most out of the Digital Transformation

21 February 2023

MAPEX invited Chris Eberl for a talk: On February 21st, the Deputy Director of Fraunhofer IWM, lectured about “The future of Materials Science and Engineering: How to participate and get the most out of the Digital Transformation”.

In the first part of this talk, Eberl introduced the goals and realistic possibilities of ongoing initiatives. He also addressed the role of the Nationale Forschungdaten Infrastruktur NFDI, and specifically the NFDI-MatWerk, as well as the BMBF MaterialDigital initiative.

In the second part, an introduction to practical examples from within the Fraunhofer IWM was used to show various aspects of digitalization and their use and how it might be implemented.

Chris Eberl is Deputy Director Fraunhofer IWM and Full Professor at Fraunhofer Institute for Mechanics of Materials, University of Freiburg, IMTEK, Faculty of Engineering. Since 2021 he is Spokesperson at NFDI-MatWerk, since 2019 Board Member at the Innovation Plattform MaterialDigital (BMBF) and also Board Member at the “Excellence Cluster livMatS”, Uni Freiburg. Chris Eberl is member of the Fraunhofer Vintage Class.

14th ECR Workshop

14 February 2023

MAPEX and the MAPEX Doctoral Qualification Programme organised the 14th ECR Workshop, which was held in February 2023 under the motto 'Science meets Industry'.The focus of the workshop was to provide Early Career Researchers an opportunity to come into contact with graduates who are now successful in their careers in industry and business. A particular highlight of the workshop was the focus on the aspect of spin-offs from the academic research.

In two interesting and impressive career talks two experienced scientists gave a very personal view on their professional development. Dr. Mar Fernández-Méndez introduced her innovative project and idea of aquafarming the open ocean with the aim to reduce pressures on coastal natural ecosystems and their biodiversity and also contributing to reduce Carbon Dioxide at scale. As co-founder of "Seafields", she shared her personal challenges and necessities of being an academic researcher and a company founder at the same time.

Prof. Dr. Jan-Henning Dirks from Hochschule Bremen - City University of Applied Sciences gave an insightful talk about his personal career trajectory, highlighting his professional and personal experience in the private sector as well as in academic research. He explained why it was exactly the right decision for him to return to academia after a short time in industry, which eventually led to a professorship. He presented his interesting scientific work on the biomechanical properties of the cuticle exoskeleton.

Two panel sessions gave an opportunity for direct discussion and exchange with the invited panellists. In the panel discussion “moving from academia to industry”, Dr. Valentin Baric (ArcelorMittal Bremen) and Dr.-Ing. Mirko Christ (OHB System AG) gave insights into their individual career paths. They have successfully started a career in industry after being a scientist in the MAPEX community. The focus of the discussion was on important skills and competences necessary in their current professional work as well as on the differences in the daily work routine between the academic and the private sector.

“Starting a company from academia” was the second panel in which Dr. Marin Holi (TOPAS Industriemathematik) and Dr. Andreas Grund (GCP-Service International Ltd. & Co. KG) shared their unique perspectives and expertise on starting a business from academia. What does it take to turn ideas into a successful business model? How to deal with possible setbacks along the way? This were only some of the questions the participants discussed with our guests. In this context, Jeroen Langejan introduced BRIDGE’s broad range of services as a central contact point for start-up support for members of Bremen’s universities.

Finally, the workshop featured two presentations on scientific and applied work by Early Career Investigators at MAPEX. Dr. Tim Radel from BIAS gave an overview of different laser procedures for surface modification, including laser polishing and laser-induced periodic surface structures (LIPSS). Dr. Manuel Alonso-Orts from the Institute of Solid State Physics presented his scientific work on Gallium Oxide. His goal is to overcome technical challenges related to the UWBG system by developing and applying novel fabrication methods and designs for visible and near-UV optical cavities based on epitaxial Ga2O3.
