Functional Materials for Energy
1-2 June 2021 - San Sebastián, Spain and on-line
The seminar will cover the powder based functional materials that are currently used, or will likely be used, in the energy sector. With the ever-increasing push towards greener energy production and distribution, functional materials can be a key field where Europe can innovate and bring even higher efficiencies in all relevant processes, with consequent advantages in terms of environmental impact at all levels.
The energy sector includes materials in raw materials refining, energy production, energy storage and transportation, etc. Thus, catalysers, high temperature, radiation shielding, heat exchangers, energy storage (including hydrogen and solid-state batteries), electrical materials, semi- and superconductors, are all possible candidates for discussion in the seminar.
The event is hosted in the headquarters of one of the most important research centres in Europe, CEIT, in San Sebastián, Spain, and will include a visit to the relevant labs. Due to COVID limitations, remote connection is also possible both for speakers and participants.
Participation is warmly advised for all researchers and engineers dealing with development, production and use of these powder-based materials.
EPMA members/Academics/End-Users: €500
Speaker one day: free of charge
Speaker full (attending 2 days): €300
The course fee includes lectures and presentations by high level industrial professionals, some sessions of Questions & Answers, as well as an access to all the presentations after the seminar. The fees apply both to in-person and remote participation. Further limitations may force to switch to a fully online format.
Registration deadline: 18 May 2021
