A few days ago  (21-24 September 2015), the DiStruc fellows attended the first Scientific Training session, held at the Foundation for Research and Technology, Hellas (FORTH), in Crete. It was the first time they met each other and with the other members of the Network, so the programme was arranged accordingly. The fellows and their Supervisors introduced themselves and briefly presented their individual DiStruc projects. This was followed by introductory lectures on theory, simulations, experiments, and synthesis, given by selected supervisors of the Network and two of our partners, Patrick Davidson and David Dunmur. Finally, two lectures were given by our invited speaker, Professor Jan Mewis, from KU Leuven.
