EuroNanoForum 2019: eseia and EMIRI workshop on Advanced Energy Materials

10.07.2019

On the 14 June 2019, Energy Materials Industrial Research Initiative EMIRI supported by eseia organised the workshop ‘Shaping the Future Advanced Materials for Energy Transition and Future Mobility’. The workshop took place in the framework of the EuroNanoForum 2019 in Bucharest, Romania, from 12 to 14 June.

Philippe Jacques, EMIRI Managing Director opened the session presenting the organisation’s activities towards energy transition. Following, Marcos Lerides, Bax & Company consultant and Barbara Tišler, representative from the National Institute of Chemistry of Slovenia addressed how to use science and technology to approach large scale societal challenges and the benefits of the EU R&I ecosystem.

During the session, eseia Director Brigitte Hasewend underlined the importance of the human factor developing new energy materials for a climate-neutral Europe by 2050. R&I on advanced materials require involving cross-sector alliances to tackle the challenge. Prof. Dr Norbert Enzinger stressed the benefits of additive manufacturing and Prof. Dr Franz Stelzer from the Graz University of Technology, AT, spoke about new energy materials and the way to sustainable and economically successful products. 

The EuroNanoForum 2019, organised under the Romanian Presidency of the Council of the European Union brought together 500 scientists, industry representatives and policymakers to discuss the cross-sectorial challenges faced by the application of Nanotechnologies and Advanced Materials.
