The 2nd UMA3 Summer School on “Lightweight alloys and MMCs for aerospace” and Strategic Workshop on “Simulation of materials behaviour and manufacturing processes” were successfully held from the 26th until the 30th of September 2022, at the University of Patras, Greece.
Numerous insightful and engrossing presentations on a wide range of topics associated with lightweight alloys and MMCs as well as on complementary topics took place in the frame of the events. In addition, several interesting visits were realized. Namely, a visit to the Composites and Nanomaterials Laboratory of FORTH / ICE-HT was held. The laboratory is a European centre of excellence in composites and nanomaterials and performs pioneering research on graphene. Moreover, the participants visited the Laboratory for Manufacturing Systems and Automation (LMS) – LMS, which is a European focal point for manufacturing systems and automation. The full agenda of the 5-days’ duration events, can be found here.
