MAGicSky partners met once again in the midst of the summer to share with one another all the progress accomplished since the previous meeting: whether within or outside the consortium.
This second event allowed partners to prepare deliverables and their contents due for after the summer holidays. Some dissemination content and tools were discussed as well in order to prepare reaching out to our audience in the following months.

This summer, MAGicSky participants are disseminating their very promising results on skyrmions.
The Pint of Science festival in Leeds, UK, the SOCSIS (Spin Orbit Coupling and Topology in Low Dimensions) workshop in Spetses, Greece, as well as the Sol-Skymag conference in San Sebastian, Spain, are a very good start for this skyrmionic summer.
MAGicSky was also present at the TopMAG16 (Topological Patterns and Dynamics in Magnetic Elements and in Condensed Matter) workshop in Dresden.
More information on the presentations made during these events can be found on our twitter account.

Within the EU project MagicSky the spintronics theory group at the Institute of Theoretical Physics and Astrophysics at the Christian-Albrechts-Universität of Kiel is opening two PhD positions in the field of magnetic skyrmions at interfaces and surfaces.
One of the PhD candidates will focus on the exploration of complex magnetic structures at surfaces and interfaces based on first-principles electronic structure theory. She/he is expected to perform first-principles calculations using density functional theory as implemented in the FLEUR code to explore magnetic interactions at transition-metal interfaces.
The second PhD candidate will develop and apply parallel tempering Monte-Carlo and spin dynamics simulations to study the phase diagram, stability and interaction of magnetic skyrmions at interfaces and in multilayers. The parameters are obtained from the DFT calculations by mapping total energy calculations to an effective spin Hamiltonian.
For more information, please have a look at the job offer.

The seven partners forming the MAGicSky-FET consortium gathered together on the 18th and on the 19th of February in Hamburg, Germany.
Very promising results and fruitful collaborations have led the meetings all along this two-day event.
The consortium was able to visit the Institut für Nanostruktur- und Festkörperphysik (INF) at the Universität Hamburg. MAGicSky young PhD students and Postdocs took this oppurtunity to interact and discuss about each other's various experiments.
The consortium gave its full attention to promising results and to challenges yet to tackle.
