Mr Themistoklis Melissaris ( ESR 12/ Wärtsilä) participated in the European Researcher’s Night in Rotterdam. The event was called “Science Hotel “and was organized by the Erasmus University Rotterdam for the 21st lustrum of Erasmus University Rotterdam and the European Night of the Researcher.
As a Marie Curie Fellow he presented his research area at the European Corner of the “Science Hotel”. His poster “Cavitating Flows and Surface Erosion – Applications and Numerical Prediction” was displayed at the “Marie Curie Gallery”. He also gave a short speech to explain the cavitation phenomenon and answered the questions of the audience and the Dutch science journalist Eveline van Rijswijk. The audience found out what is cavitation and cavitation erosion and how harmful it can be for mechanical components and how beneficiary for the biomedical sector.
Overall, the event was very successful not only for the young audience but also for the participating researchers, because they had the chance to get familiar with other research topics and Marie-Curie projects.
