B-MRS Lives & Webinars: last month of the program.


sbpmat-Lives-logo_1500pxIn August, the last 2020 technical webinars of the B-MRS Lives & Webinars program were held. Five online lectures on scientific instrumentation and material characterization were given by professionals from instrumentation companies, from Brazil and abroad. Between 30 and 160 participants attended each of the lectures, held on B-MRS’s Zoom and Facebook.

The Lives & Webinars program is a B-MRS learning and training initiative during the period of social distancing due to the Covid-19 pandemic, carried out in partnership with instrumentation companies.

B-MRS Lives & Webinars: second month of the program.


The month of July included eight technical webinars from the B-MRS Lives & Webinars program, delivered by professionals from instrumentation companies. Between 100 and 200 participants attended each of the lectures, held on Zoom and on B-MRS’s Facebook. Four more webinars will take place during the month of August.

The Lives & Webinars program is a B-MRS initiative for learning and training during the period of social distancing due to the Covid-19 pandemic, carried out in partnership with instrumentation companies.

The program includes a variety of subjects, from fundamentals and applications of techniques widely used by the Materials research community, to the presentation of state-of-the-art instruments and digital tools for teaching in the field of Materials.

Lives & Webinars Program: first month.


sbpmat-Lives-logo_1500pxDuring the month of June, five technical webinars were held on the Zoom platform, with live transmission via B-MRS’s Facebook platform, within the Live & Webinars program, organized by B-MRS in partnership with instrumentation companies.

By the end of August, 12 more webinars will be offered. The program includes a variety of subjects, from fundamentals and applications of techniques widely used by the Materials research community, to the presentation of state-of-the-art research instruments and digital tools for teaching in the field of Materials.

The already held online seminars had audiences of up to 500 participants. “We are happy to see that many people, especially young people, are using this pandemic time to gain knowledge and for self-improvement,” says Professor Mônica Cotta, president of B-MRS, who has participated in all the seminars.
