Joint IOP/MagnEFi school

Aimed at early stage postgraduate research students, this two-day school will provide a mixture of training and topical lectures on magnetism, spintronics and electric field effects on magnetism. It will also provide an excellent opportunity for participants to meet other members of the UK and international magnetism community. It is planned for the school to run as a hybrid event, both in-person and online, and to consist of lectures and a poster session. We hope that the event will serve to both connect and reconnect research students after the disruption caused by the pandemic.

Dates: 28th-29th October 2021

Venue: University of Leeds, U.K.

MagnEFi network event

MagnEFi ESRs and PIs held their first in-person network event in Turin, Italy from October 24-27, 2021. The meeting, originally scheduled to be held in the UK, was moved to Italy due to COVID related travel restrictions. ESRs had the opportunity to present their research to date and to discuss possible future collaborations. They also took part in a Collaborative Device Concepts workshop and will present their ideas to an IP expert at the next network event. A PI meeting was held to discuss project progress to date, ESR concerns/questions, secondments and the upcoming periodic report to the European Commission. Some group photos from the event (courtesy of Pingzhi Li) can be found below.
