As part of a European International Training Network, named SMARTNET, Ivan and Ines meet the other colleagues and supervisors in the network every 6 months. This October, the meeting was held in the TU Delft facilities.
All the project leaders (including Dr. Tell Tuttle) met on Monday afternoon and then a great welcoming dinner took place at a restaurant in Delft. On October 27th all the ESRs presented their project updates, followed by questions and answers from their colleagues and group leaders.
From the 28th to the 30th October, the students attended a workshop on Chemical Process Design, where they worked as a team to apply the knowledge learned throughout the workshop. After several exercises and tasks on team building, idea generation, needs and solutions and design, all the teams were able to present their product along with some design for its process and production.
