Wise Welcome meeting


The first edition of the WISE welcome meeting takes place at Kolmården from August 28 to 30, 2023. The agenda includes presentations by newly appointed WISE faculty members, industry representatives, and leaders from other programs with strong synergies with WISE. Additionally, there will be presentations and poster sessions where all new PhD students and postdocs will present their projects.

WISE plans to make the welcome meeting an annual event to introduce newcomers to WISE and its organizational structure, providing an opportunity for networking and getting to know each other's projects.

Cecilia Persson, a professor in the division of Biomedical Engineering, will give a lecture on additive manufacturing of magnesium alloys. She will discuss the work focused on solving the most fundamental aspects of 3D printing magnesium-based alloys, as well as using this manufacturing method to customize the microstructure and facilitate the development of new alloys.

Cecilia is also the chair of the AM@Å initiative, which has applied to become a WISE Research Technology Platform. This would further enhance research in the sustainability aspects of additive manufacturing.
