The general objective of LOCA Technical sessions is to value the knowledge, talent and experience of the center's workers and researchers, and support the creation of a multidisciplinary work team based on the strengths of each and every one of its members.
To contribute to a sustainable and organic growth of the hardware design area at BSC, we propose organizing Internal LOCA Tech sessions. A monthly event whose objectives are: 1) promotion of internal BSC talent (Tech-Talk sessions), and 2) continuous learning/development mechanism (Reading club sessions).
Tech-Talk session: Technical presentations on specific topics with the aim of putting the spotlight on the most senior and post-doc community’s background and know-how, and also making visible the research and/or interests areas of work of each of those members.
Reading club session: Technical sessions in the form of a presentation with the objectives of: 1) actively involving members with less experience in research activities, and 2) offering a “light-weight” training/retraining mechanism for all members that allows them to keep up to date with the state of the art.
