On how to manage and share references

There are a number of popular bibliography management software tools such as Endnote, Mendeley, RefWorks or Zotero, among others. Endnote Online is  available at the four academic beneficiaries of the TRUSS consortium via their subscription to "Web of Science", and it has been chosen to create an online shared TRUSS group which allows TRUSS ESRs to be [...]

Industrial training on the latest technology

An essential component in the training of TRUSS fellows is gathering expertise during visits and secondments to industrial partners that will enhance their research outputs and prepare them for a job in their chosen topic. The interaction with industrial partners allows fellows to learn about state-of-the-art technology, to apply technical knowledge and engineering methods to [...]
