Thinface Summer School

Thinface Summer School

Thinface is a Marie Curie Initial Training network with 8 partners from 6 countries. The project was granted on September 1st 2013 and deals with organic electronics. After the end of its first year we have now 11 out of 13 PhD candidates employed, two of them at SDU and a third one will follow.

In the past summer we had a wonderful time with 32 participants in a summer school that took place in Sønderborg. The students came from 8 European countries and spent a week of their summer with us. In total 14 scientists gave lectures or insights into their industries. The topics ranged from organic photovoltaics to organic electronics, device fabrication, device stability and interface issues in such systems.

Apart from attending the lectures the students had the chance to explore the town and meet in several locations in the evening with lecturers or on their own. Soon they developed new friendships and enjoyed themselves exploring the possibilities that Sønderborg offers.  All enjoyed the summer school very much and we got comments like ‘ A wonderful summer school’ and ‘Sehr schöne Sommerschule´ and ‘Many thanks. This was a very good summer school.’ both from lecturers and participants.

The Marie Curie Program expects its participants to travel around a lot to other partners also from industry and to actively be involved in many activities as summer schools or open house or being ambassador in schools or public for the program and the topics they work on.
