Workshop on cross-cutting issues in structural materials R&D for future energy systems

25/11/2015

The EERA Joint Programme for Nuclear Materials is organising a workshop on cross-cutting issues in structural materials R&D for future energy systems.

When: Wednesday 25-11-2015 09:00 – Thursday 26-11-2015 15:00

Where: Institute for Energy and Transport, Petten, The Netherlands

The workshop is open for interested researchers, but registration is required.

About the workshop
Structural and functional materials are key for the development&implementation of low-carbon,clean,efficient and reliable energy technologies. Although different energy systems such as renewables (wind, photovoltaics,etc), nuclear and “clean” fossil technologies, have different challenges,there are also many cross-cutting issues and needs.

The purpose of this Workshop, organised within the EU-FP7 project MaTISSE,is to discuss the status of structural materials R&D for future energy systems and particularly to identify common topics and share knowledge between different technologies.

The workshop will address four cross-cutting issues:

  • High temperature applications
  • Steels and metallic alloys
  • Ceramics
  • Compatibility with liquid metals
  • Design Codes
  • Advanced steels development and manufacturing.
