Each year, 11 European universities – KTH, Karlstadt University et Mid Sweden University (Sweden), Aalto University, Åbo Akademi, University of Helsinki et Tampere University of Technology (Finland), Norwegian University of Science and Technology (Norway), Technische Universität Darmstadt (Germany), Graz University of Technology (Austria), Grenoble INP-Pagora (France) – specialising in subjects ranging from lignocellulosic biorefinery to cellulose materials (including paper, cardboard and composites), organise a summer school for PhD students.
The aim? To discuss the research taking place today and build a network of PhD students for the benefit of their future professional careers.
Having been invited to join the consortium two years ago, Grenoble INP-Pagora organised the 2015 session in the Vercors mountains. The 71 participants included 47 PhD students, 10 industry professionals and 14 professors from the partner universities. After visiting the ESRF (The European Synchrotron Facility), ), they were taken to Autrans, the site selected for this three-day event. The conference was opened by Noël Cartier, Filtration Development Director at Ahlstrom, and Patrice Mangin, Professor at the University of Quebec in Trois-Rivières (Canada). Their presentations offered students a glimpse of the vision held by one of the leading industrial players in the speciality papers sector and an insight into the evolution of the biorefinery field in North America. A total of 42 presentations were subsequently given by PhD students, including four from Grenoble.

The organising team, which included four PhD (Elsa Walger, Benoît Arnoul Jarriault, Florian Martoia and Vivien Deloule) and two teacher-researchers (Jean-Francis Bloch and Christine Chirat), would particularly like to thank the scientific interest group Multimatériaux Architecturés for the financial support provided to the event.
