MRC Annual Research Mee/ng 2014 • Date: 19 Feb. 2014 • Loca2on: KU Leuven, Thermotechnical Ins2tute. This will be the moment to present the materials research at large at KU Leuven to our academic contacts but also to our industrial contacts. The presenta2on of the annual report of KU Leuven MRC will be preceded by a lecture on the value of academic research for industry and society within the European context, given by prof. Bourguignon, President of the European Research Council Execu2ve Agency (ERC).In the second part of the aQernoon some PhD students or post doctorates brieﬂy present their work. We hope to give a good overview to the outside world of ongoing research. 1
