    Borrelcie Pajama/Bathrobe social

    Last year's Pajama social was a great success. Therefore, the Borrelcie wants to do the exact same thing and also make it even more laid back. They'll have some activities for you (maybe even some karaoke) to participate in.

    Startup Competition (Beta Business Days)

    On February 6, the Beta Business Days will organize the Startup Competition. During this competition, the University of Groningen will provide a patent that is owned by the FSE, which gives students the opportunity to work on product design and marketing/business plans based on these patents.

    The UG has many research groups that are discovering new things every day, and the effect of this is that the UG has many patents. Not all of the patents are developed into a new company or study, but they do have potential.

    The event will start at 17:00 at the Start-up City (Kadijk 4) and will end around 22:00. 

    Before the competition will start, Peter Verstrate (COO at Mosa Meat) will give a presentation. Mosa Meat is a cultured meat startup, originated from a patent. 

    Victor Stoica (Business Development Manager at the UG) will provide a brief explanation of the patent and the requirements and expectations of the competition. Guided by tutors, the teams will brainstorm about how to make the product, how to improve the product, who could make a prototype and who could fabricate it. At the end of the evening, every team will pitch their ideas to a panel of judges and the best idea will win a prize of €400,-. Each participant of the running up team will receive a €25,- gift card. 

    During the competition, coffee, tea, soda, and snacks will be provided, and there will be a dinner break. Participation is free and for all students of the FSE and TeMa. No prior experience or knowledge is required; your creative mind is enough! 

    So are you curious about the business side of science and how to set up a company? Then apply in a team (4-5 students), in a pair or by yourself and join us on the 6th of February!

    Francken Friday Lecture

    Sytze Tirion is doing his Master Project in Spin-Orbitt torques in 2D materials.
    For those of you who are interested, here is a very short summary of what Sytze is researching:

    In the modern world of electronics there is a largedemand for ever faster and dimensionally smaller electronics. Having efficientdata storage is one of the challenges which is part of this field.Magnetoresistive Random Access Memory (MRAM) requires control of themagnetization of a thin layer. A new and promising technique which has emergedto control the magnetization, is by means of Spin-Orbit torques. WhereSpin-Orbit coupling is the mechanism behind a spin accumulation which allowscontrol of the magnetization in a comparably efficient manner. In this masterproject the generation of spin-orbit torques in a sandwich of a two dimensionalmaterial and a ferromagnet is investigated.

    During the "Elfbierentocht", you will visit various associations of the FSE. At each association, you can get beer. In total, you will try to clear 7 craft beers. Seven stamp posts will be set up thoughout the FSE, each post having a separate craft beer. The goal is to collect all seven stamps while getting to know all the other study associations of the faculty. The costs are 16 euros per person. The event will start on February 25th at 17:00, at the luchtbrug. You can sign up at the franckendoor. This event is organized by the FMF (EscalaCie) in collaboration with various other associations.
