3rd Global Young Investigator Forum



The Global Young Investigators Forum aims to facilitate scientific discussions among young researchers and exchange of ideas essential to identify emerging global challenges at the interface of physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, material science and engineering. Young researches below 35 years of age are invited to join this event to share and discuss their recent results in form of brief presentations. This forum will help to establish global cooperation and networks among young scientists to approach future challenges in ceramic science and technology.
