The InnoChain Second Year Colloquium, which will take place between 12-14 February 2018, is a shared evaluation event in which all Early Stage Researcher (ESRs) present their research development. The InnoChain ITN Network is a shared research training environment examining how advances in digital design tools challenge building culture enabling sustainable, informed and materially smart design solutions. The network aims to train a new generation of interdisciplinary researchers, through the development of 15 PhDs, with a strong industry focus that can effect real changes in the way we think, design and build our physical environment
The 2018 Second Year Colloquium invites therefore all beneficiaries and industry partners to discuss the research development of the ESR projects in plenum. This includes review and evaluation of industrial collaboration and secondment programme including the secondment periods.
Keynote speakers will give lectures to support the further research development in field of WP3 to WP5. Invited scientists will carry out evaluation of level of work and progress within the network. In addition, meetings of the Industry Partner Board takes place on the second day, while meetings of the Steering Committee and ESRs’ will take place on the third day of the Colloquium.
