SPEAR ESRs will participate in the yearly consortium meetings. The first consortium meeting will allow the freshly recruited ESRs to introduce themselves to SPEAR investigators and the other ESRs. At the following consortium meetings, the ESRs will report on the progress of their research projects.
|Kick-off Meeting (ONLINE)||Donostia, Spain|
4 March 2021
|Consortium Meeting 1||Grenoble, France|
|Consortium Meeting 2||Gothenburg, Sweden|
|Consortium Meeting 3||Hamburg, Germany|
|Consortium Meeting 4 (Final meeting)||Donostia, Spain|
Focus Topic Sessions
SPEAR will organize 5 Focus Topic Sessions (FTS) with lectures and seminars in key topics related to Spin Orbitronics. The core of each FTS will be made up of lectures given by SPEAR key scientific staff. Visiting scientists will give complementary lectures. Each FTS will be locally organized by a different beneficiary organization, and will have a duration of 1.5 days.
|FTS1: Spin-to-charge conversion||Grenoble, France|
|FTS2: Spin-orbit torques||Leuven, Belgium|
|FTS3: Spintronics for beyond CMOS||Gothenburg, Sweden|
|FTS4: Topology in condensed matter||Halle, German|
|FTS5: Skyrmions||Hamburg, Germany|
Special Training Sessions
The SPEAR consortium considers that training in transferable skills is of primary importance for increasing the ESRs’ employability and will accordingly devote a significant effort to implement an all-inclusive and comprehensive training in topics that are complementary to the scientific and technological training acquired by the ESRs through their research at the host and secondment institutions. SPEAR will organize 5 Special Training Sessions (STS) on transferable skills that will run in parallel with the FTS in order to optimize the time and resources. Each STS will have a duration of 1.5 days and will be composed of both theoretical and practical approaches. The content and methodology of each STS was defined by our expert partner, Skills 4 Science, who will be in charge of delivering the training in collaboration with other SPEAR beneficiaries and partners.
|STS1: Ethics and science integrity and gender awareness in science||Grenoble, France|
|STS2: Speak about science- oral and written communication skills||Leuven, Belgium|
|STS3: Idea generation and entrepreneurship||Gothenburg, Sweden|
|STS4: Project management – from grant application to project closure||Halle, Germany|
|STS5: Carreer development and job opportunities in academia and industry||Hamburg, Germany|
Participation in conferences
SPEAR ESRs will attend one edition of the European School on Magnetism (ESM), a yearly event organized by the European Magnetism Association (EMA). The mission of ESM is higher education of young scientists in the field of magnetism and spintronics, while promoting networking and creating effective links between academia and the industry. At the end of the project, ESRs will take part in the SPEAR Final Conference, an event aimed at disseminating project results.
|European School on Magnetism (European Magnetism Association)||TBA|
|SPEAR final conference||Donostia, Spain|
