The meeting, which brings together more than 60 professionals of the academic and industrial field at the Villa Suso Palace, is organized by CIC energiGUNE in collaboration with the section ‘Ceramics for Electrochemistry and Energy’ of the Spanish Society of Ceramics and Glass (SECV) and will extend until the 9th of July.

“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.

The main topics that will be discussed during the three days of the congress will revolve around four main sections: new approaches and applications of processing, multifunctional systems, energy generation and storage, and piezoceramics. CIC energiGUNE, from its position as a co-organizing entity, will offer a talk in charge of doctor Javier Carrasco centered on “the understanding of the conductivity of lithium ions in solid ceramic-polymer electrolytes based on garnet and compounds through atomistic simulations”.

The organizers have emphasized the annual meeting that has consolidated as an important forum where experts and interested companies have the opportunity of discussing the recent advancements and emerging topics in the sector, sharing recent results, perceptions, questions and ideas about the advance in the understanding and applications of electroceramics.

Additionally, they have recalled that in the field of energy generation and storage (batteries, fuel cells, solar panels, etc.) there is a big quantity of ceramic materials that are currently in use and that their impact and foreseeable growth is evident. In this context, the meeting gives room to every aspect related to the research, from materials in volume to thin films, dusts, nanomaterials, hybrid materials and compound materials; as well as modelling, synthesis, processing, properties, applications and functioning of the devices.
