Furthermore, our industrial partners from Rocsole, Tata Steel, Linde, Sulzer and Shell gave some short presentations on optimising fluid in continuous casting, hydrodynamics and gamma-tomography, innovation and new energy aspects.
For the 2nd part of the day, the demonstration groups met virtually for individual demo group meetings where they discussed the current status and the next steps for the preparation and planning of the final demonstrations. During the 2nd and 3rd day, all ESRs presented their project work in individual 10-minute presentations and the Lead ESR from each demo group gave an outline of the plan for the final demo.
