Short Introduction to MIGRATE
The Marie Sklodowska-Curie action MIGRATE addresses some of the current challenges to innovation that face European industry with regard to heat and mass transfer in gas-based micro-scale processes. The associated ETN innovation training network spans numerical, experimental, theoretical and applied research experts across academia, large scale industry and high-tech SMEs. MIGRATE has received funding by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.
During this 2-day symposium, the members of the MIGRATE network will showcase the main achievements of the project. In addition, a variety of talks will be selected to present a state-of-the art view to the covered topics as well as new developments and research results.
The program will include keynote lectures, invited lectures and contributed papers. A call for extended abstracts will be published by early 2019. Detailed information about ISTEGIM 2019 will be presented on: www.istegim.eu
The symposium program will cover the following topics:
- Micro Sensors & Sensing Techniques
- Sampling and Analysis Microsystems
- Energy Recovery Microsystems
In each of these fields, new developments will be presented, concerning:
- Modelling, simulation and design tools
- Experimental techniques and measurements
- Materials and manufacturing techniques
Much to our regret we have to inform about the sudden and totally unexpected passing of Prof. Dr. Jason Reese, University of Edinburgh, on March 8 2019 at the age of 51 years.
He had contributed significantly to the training of young researchers in both the GASMEMS and the MIGRATE projects to make each of these a great success with excellent outcomes.
Jason was a highly acknowledged scientist of outstanding reputation (see https://www.eng.ed.ac.uk/about/people/prof-jason-reese), an extremely friendly, nice humorous colleague and friend!
We all will miss his support and his positive attitude.
