Letter from Hermina Hudelja, PhD student who got the “Grant for 2020 American Winter Workshop”

YCN Newsletter - May 2020

In January 2020, thanks to JECS Trust, I had the opportunity and pleasure to attend ACerS Winter workshop 2020 organized in the scope of 44th International Conference and Expo on Advanced Ceramics and Composites held in Daytona Beach, Florida, USA. The emphasis was on more lectures for soft skills development and events, such as student and young professionals’ mixer, career development roundtable discussion, working in a foreign culture and others. 

I would recommend this workshop to all young researchers from the ceramic community and beyond, since it provides unique improvements not only in the sense of broader knowledge about ceramics, but also for personal development and networking, which are equally important. The workshop was an ideal opportunity to form new contacts with people just starting their research careers and with already established researchers, which were nurtured every evening with “mandatory” drinks in the local pubs.

JECS Trust`s travel grant not only enabled my participation to this wonderful workshop, but it also covered the cost of my trip and workshop registration fee, for which I am very grateful.

Meeting with ceramics students from ACerS

During the ACerS Winter Workshop, YCN Network has been presented in front of 53 international students in the field of ceramics. We would like to thank to ACerS and ACerS President's Council of Student Advisors (PCSA) for welcoming the YCN at the workshop.

If you have any questions about the ceramics field related to the USA send the mail to one of the YCN committee members to which our associates from PSCA are going to answer.
