Doctoral and microscopy seminars of the GDCh Division of the Chemistry of Construction Materials

PhD seminar 2023 (31.05.-02.06.2023 in Weimar)


The 2023 doctoral seminar on chemistry of construction materials took place on the grounds of the European Youth Education and Meeting Center in Weimar. Nine doctoral students used this opportunity to exchange scientific ideas and to present their doctoral topics. In addition to the scientific exchange, there was a barbecue evening, an afternoon walk to famous Bauhaus sites, a visit to the "Schmale Towel" (a Weimar institution that has been tapping beer for the thirsty - including many students - for more than 100 years) and a Guided tour of the laboratories of the Professorship of chemistry of construction materials and Polymer Materials, which are equipped with the latest testing and analysis technology.

PhD seminar 2017


After the successful events from 2007 to 2011 in Weimar, the Division of the Chemistry of Construction Materials was able to hold a conference this year from 11.-13. May at the Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences - Technology and Economics again offer a seminar for doctoral students. The focus of the 2.5-day meeting, in addition to the visit to the Sika headquarters in Stuttgart and the visit to the Stuttgart 21 construction site, was the seminar with specialist presentations on the current research topics of the participants. After the lectures, there was time for an intensive exchange between the participants and with the supervising professors. In the final workshop, in addition to the first steps after the doctorate, career planning and application, the current area of ​​conflict between scientific work and taking on teaching tasks during the doctorate was discussed and discussed with Dr. Saskia Oehmichen openly discussed as a representative of the "NextStep" platform of Deutsche chemistry of construction materials .
