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, will bring to Vitoria-Gasteiz the XV edition of the National Meeting on Electroceramics, organized by the section ‘Ceramics for Electronics and Energy’ of the Spanish Society of Ceramic and Glass (SECV), in collaboration with the Basque center. The meeting will take place in the Villa Suso Palace, from the 7th to the 9th of July.
“It is an excellent opportunity to get close to the technology transfer process of this field of Materials Sciences, which has proved to be one of the most active ones and the one with the highest number of effective applications in all of the engineering fields”, has indicated Montserrat Casas – Cabanas, Chairwoman of the Organizing Committee and Scientific Coordinator of the Research Area of Electrochemical Storage at CIC energiGUNE.
The organization of the event expects to gather half a hundred experts in Vitoria-Gasteiz, who will present the latest advancements of this technology in fields as diverse as electronics and communications, manufacturing equipment, generation, storage and distribution of energy, nanomedicine, aerospace, automotive, and security and defense.
The objective of the meeting is to encourage all the participating people to share the recent results, ideas and questions about the advances in the compression and applications of electroceramics. In this context all the aspects relating to the research will be given space, from volume materials to thin films, dusts, nanomaterials, hybrid materials and compound materials; as well as the modeling, synthesis, processing, properties, applications and the functioning of the devices.
Specifically, at the talks and conferences recent advancements will be presented such as advances in elements like electronic, ionic or mixed conductors and their applications, materials for generation, storage and conversion of energy (fuel cells, batteries, supercapacitors, thermoelectrics, solar cells and catalysts), piezoelectric and ferroelectric ceramics, nanoceramics for biomedicine, and the novel processing methods and manufacturing technologies of electroceramic materials and devices.
Among the prominent speakers are Javier Carrasco, Leader of the research group of Modelling and Computational Simulation at CIC energiGUNE; David G. Calatayud, ComFuturo researcher in the Department of Electroceramics at the Ceramic and Glass Institute – CSIC; Eva Chinarro, Co-responsible of Materials for Electrochemical Applications (ELAMAT) belonging to the Glass Department of the Ceramic and Glass Institute (ICV-CSIC); Miguel A. Laguna Bercero, Institute of Nanoscience and Materials of Aragón, INMA (CSIC-University of Zaragoza); and Albert Tarancón, ICREA Professor and Head of the Nanoionics and Fuel Cells Department of Advanced Materials for Energy / Catalonia Institute for Energy Research-IREC.
