After the successful recruitment of all eight Early Stage Researchers (ESR) it was the first meeting hosted by Weierstrass Institute Berlin, where all students, supervisors and associated partners took part. During these two days of the meeting, all the participants had a chance to introduce their tasks. An interesting plenary talk session held by all the PhD candidates has taken place, allowing them to present the projects.
Company presentations by EFD Induction Norway, SSAB and Outokumpu from Finland were a good opportunity to get to know each other, also allowing each ESR to clearly establish their own Personal Career Development Plans within the MIMESIS framework.
Finally, some organizational details were also addressed to ensure a common understanding of procedures regarding financial matters and communication within the project.
