The Agora Materiae Graduate School for PhD students working in the research field of novel functional materials, including both hard and soft materials, was initiated in January 2012. Today Agora Materiae has almost 50 members, from the three departments IFM, ITN and IEI. In year 2014, 7 PhD theses and 4 licentiate theses of Agora members were presented and defended.
Agora Materiae provides financial support from AFM, which manages larger investments in research and infrastructure, based on the strategic support from the Swedish government for materials science. The Graduate School is dedicated to offer graduate studies in a true multi-disciplinary environment.
