Marie Curie Graduate School on Vehicle Mechatronics and Dynamics (Feb 4-8,'13)

The 2013 Leuven Marie Curie Graduate School on Vehicle Mechatronics and Dynamics brings together expert lecturers from five running Marie Curie Actions (ITN GRESIMO, EID eLiQuiD, IRSES SUPERPANELS, IAPP TIRE-DYN and IAPP INTERACTIVE) and a Cost Action (TU1105) in the fields of vehicle NVH, Dynamics and Control. The Graduate School provides technical training for both Early Stage and Experienced Researchers and creates a platform for networking and knowledge exchange.
