Saalasti hall

GENOME OF STEEL is a profiling area project at the University of Oulu. The goal is to integrate experimental observations and theory in the steel regime, increasing the fundamental understanding on the relationships between steel processing, microstructure and properties.

Time: 11.9.2019 klo 08.30 – 17.00
Venue: University of Oulu, Saalasti Hall, Pentti Kaiteran katu 1, 90014 Oulu, Finland

Seminar is free and open for everyone.
Seminar is organised by the Centre for Advanced Steel Research (CASR)
