From September 27th to 29th, 2016 was hold in Darmstadt (Germany) the Materials Science and Engineering Congress (MSE). With more than 1,400 participants, the MSE is one of the largest English speaking congresses and exhibition in the field of Material Science and Engineering. It is hosted by the German Materials Society (DGM) in Darmstadt, the MSE is the central platform for material science and engineering experts to present their research field

Andrea Giaccherini and Enrico Berretti from INSTM (Italy) take part to the congress presenting results from the Scail-UP project. Two oral communications titled “Electrodeposition of Aluminium from ionic liquids: effects of the process parameters on morphology and corrosion resistance” and “FEA study of the electrodeposition of Al from ILs: definition of a pilot plant model for an industrial scale-up” were presented during the symposium “protective coatings and function thin films” that attracted a large number of attendees from both academia and industry. Bot the presentation were welcomed by the scientific community and stimulates possible future collaborations with engineers and material scientists.
