“Electroceramic materials have an enormous potential to access new markets in emerging technological sectors” has assured this morning at the inauguration of the XV Spanish National Meeting on Electroceramics, Montse Casas – Cabanas, Chairwoman of the Organizing Committee and Scientific Coordinator of the Electrochemical Storage Research Area at CIC energiGUNE, the Basque research center of reference in battery storage, thermal energy solutions and hydrogen, and member of the Basque Research & Technology Alliance-BRTA. This year CIC energiGUNE organizes the meeting in Vitoria-Gasteiz in collaboration with the section ‘Ceramics for Electronics and Energy’ of the Spanish Society of Ceramics and Glass (SECV).
The meeting, which has begun today and will extend until Friday the 9th of July with sessions at the Villa Suso Palace in the capital of Álava, counts with the participation of more than 60 experts and professionals of the sector, most of them belonging to academic and industrial sectors. Even though the majority of the attendees are from Spain, professionals from Portugal, Mexico or Romania have also registered, which demonstrates the interest of this conference.
The program foresees the celebration of 14 posters, 38 talks and 5 keynote presentations, in charge of renowned experts in this discipline, such as David G. Calatayud, researcher in the Department of Electroceramics at the Ceramic and Glass Insitute-CSIC; Javier Carrasco, Leader of the Modelling and Computational Simulation research group at CIC energiGUNE; Eva Chinarro, Co-responsible of Materials for Electrochemical Applications at the Ceramic and Glass Institute-CSIC; Miguel A. Laguna Bercero, researcher of the Institute of Nanoscience and Materials of Aragón; or Albert Tarancón, Responsible of the Department of Nanoionics and Fuel Cells of Advanced Materials for Energy Department at the Catalonia Institute for Energy Research-IREC.
