MASSENA Business Club Day

The Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) and the University of Luxembourg are organising the MASSENA Business Club Day 2018 which will be held on December 13th in LIST Belvaux (Lux).

This event is organized within the framework of the MASSENA project whose research activities conducted by 22 PhD students are oriented towards stress sensors and energy collectors.

This day aims to create exchanges between PhD students and industry players.

PhD students will have the opportunity to have a taste of what their future career in the industry might be. Manufacturers will be informed of the various research results in progress.
