Clustering and global challenges in hot technological sectors

Advances and perspectives in various research and technology fields are being discussed in the “Clustering and Global Challenges” (CGC2021) international online conference (7-9 April, 2021).

The Barcelona-Grenoble-Tsukuba “Clustering and Global Challenges” (CGC2021) international online conference in taking place in these days (7-9 April). A packed programme of talks, with parallel thematic sessions, will allow discussing the most recent research advances and technology developments in many hot sectors, such as Quantum Technologies, Advanced Materials, Health, Smart Energy and Topological/Photonic Materials.

This online event has been organized by the ICN2, the International Center for Materials Nanoarchitectonics of the Japanese National Institute for Materials Science (MANA/NIMS) and the Laboratoire d’Alliances Nanosciences-Energies du Futur of Grenoble (LANEF). It aims to gather experts in the aforementioned strategic technological fields, to discuss about the main challenges and opportunities in them, many of which can be addressed globally, by crating synergies between institutes and clustering at the international level.

The ICN2 is participating very actively, not only being one of the organizing institute, but also contributing many oral presentations by group leaders and researchers. Among the speakers are: ICREA Prof. José Antonio Garrido, Dr José Santiso, Dr Klaas-Jan Tielrooij, Dr Aitor Mugarza, Dr. Maria Soler, Dr. Monica Lira Cantú, Maria Tenorio, ICREA Prof. Victor Puntes, ICREA Prof. Arben Merkoçi, ICREA Prof. Stephan Roche and ICREA Prof. Sergio Valenzuela.
