The Seminar for Young Materials Researchers is an event whose aim is to promote communication and interaction between young people who are starting research in the area of ​​Materials Science, as well as to create a space in which these young people from our centre can discuss the results of their work with senior staff.

In addition, it is intended that young students from Madrid universities can attend to the event, so that they can get to know the ICMM and they can consider it among their options to develop their end-of-degree, master's degree projects, or carry out their doctoral thesis.

The event is celebrated during April and is organized in oral communications (according to the three research lines at ICMM) that will be held in English and will last 15 minutes (12 for exposition + 3 for discussion). There are scientific posters as well. They must be 90 x 120 cm. The candidates will bring them themselves. They will be exhibited in the hall of the centre during the day and will be presented during coffee breaks.

The seminar concludes with an informal round table where young researchers are able to clarify their doubts about the future with young doctors from different margins (Ramón y Cajal, Talento, Juan de la Cierva, Doctors hired in the Industry, etc.) accompanied by a cool beer. 
Dr. Eva M Maya (@email) is the ICMM person responsible for the development of this event.


There will be four prizes: one for the best communication for each line of research (three) and another for the best poster. A diploma will be delivered and an interview will be held with the four winners. This interview will be disseminated in the ICMM media (web, television at the centre, social networks) and the sector's media and will serve as a cover letter for the researcher in their career.
