Blended Intensive Programme “DataSUN” | 13th – 18th November 2022

Hello dear DRIMI students!
I would like to inform you about this intensive programme, they are looking for Master or PhD students that will receive an Erasmus scholarship (70€/day) to pay for the trip and the first night, the rest is offered.

USMB is organizing the Blended Intensive Programme “DataSUN” from the 13th to the 18th of November 2022.

The scientific school DATASUN, organized by the Solar Academy Research University School, will occur from 13th to 18th November 2022 in Le Bourget du Lac and Le Grand Bornand in the French Alps. DATASUN will be about data, its use, analysis and handing for solar energy related studies.
The aim is to cover a wide range of scales : spatial scales, from the territory to the system, but also temporal scales, from yearly prediction (including climate change forescasting) to short term predictions. Particular focus on the methods used to deal with data: clustering; bayesian approaches; machine learning, data mining, neural networks, statistical learning, principal component analysis; uncertainty analysis, etc.You’ll find more information in the document attached.

So far, 5 universities are involved in the organization: UniTO, USMB, UniTBv, UVT, UNIZAR.

More information is available on the Solar Academy’s website
Do not hesitate to contact us if you need further information at

Beatrice Abrami e Anna Mantelli, premiate dall’Associazione Italiana di Metallurgia

Beatrice Abrami e Anna Mantelli, dottorande #unibs in Ingegneria Meccanica e Industriale, sono state insignite di due prestigiosi premi per il settore metallurgico banditi dall’Associazione Italiana di Metallurgia.

👏 Due giovani donne, due giovani ricercatrici si sono distinte per il loro contributo in un settore scientifico ed industriale fondamentale per l’ingegneria. A Beatrice Abrami va il premio Felice De Carli 2022 per la sua ricerca sulla caratterizzazione microstrutturale e meccanica di stent in Nitinol, prodotti tramite additive manufacturing. Ad Anna Mantelli, il Premio Aldo Daccò 2021 a favore della ricerca sulle tecniche di fonderia e di solidificazione dei metalli, per il suo studio sull’influenza dell’impiego di anime in sabbia sulla solidificazione e sulle caratteristiche finali di componenti strutturali
