Summer Amade Day 2022

Summer Amade Day 2022

The AMADE research group holds an event called «AMADE Day» twice a year, in winter and summer. The first AMADE Day was held in a face-to-face format in January 2020, coinciding with the 20th anniversary of the group. Subsequent AMADE Days had to be held in a virtual modality due to the pandemic (July 2020, January 2021, July 2021 and January 2022). The 6th AMADE Day has been held on the 15th of July 2022, returning to a face-to-face format.

AMADE Days consist of mini-symposia in which group members share ongoing research projects and research results. They also include the participation of external guests of recognised prestige from companies and institutions specialised in the study, characterisation and analysis of the mechanical behaviour of advanced materials and structures. On this occasion, we count on the participation of Frédéric Laurin from Onera – The French Aerospace Lab and Stacy Patti, PhD student at Onera and AMADE.

We kindly invite you to visit our website dedicated to AMADE days:
