The 3rd Face to Face Project Meeting for FASTGRID is being held on the 19-20 October 2017 at the UAB Campus. The meeting is organized by KIT in Karlsruhe and hosted by ICMAB, in Barcelona. The project meeting starts at 12.00 pm on Thursday with a lab tour of ICMAB, followed by the individual partner presentations as well as status report by the project coordinator, Pascal Tixador from CNRS, at 2 pm at Hotel Campus, Bellaterra.
On the afternoon of October 18, 2017, the 41 research centers and units recognised by the Severo Ochoa and María de Maeztu certificate of excellence formalized the creation of the Excellence Alliance (SOMMa) during its first formal meeting. The meeting was chaired by the Secretary of State in R+D+i, Carmen Vela. The main objective of the Alliance is to internationally promote and strengthen the centers and units accredited for their excellence, and enhance the visibility of their research.

Research on superconductivity is showing promising results that will not only lead to the development of electrical highways across Europe, but also to higher energy efficiency and reduction of costs for renewable energy and global research projects such as CERN and ITER. In addition, the results could also be applied to a future all-electric airplane.
Els investigadors postdoctorals, provinents de 14 països diferents, s’incorporaran als centres de l’Esfera UAB-CEI en els propers mesos. El programa de contractació d’investigadors P-SPHERE obrirà una segona convocatòria la propera tardor.
This post features one of the articles published at CORDIS about the EUROTAPES project, which main goal is to develop superconducting tapes to improve energy efficiency in Europe. The SUMAN group, here at ICMAB, has actively participated in this European project, in a consortium that consists of 20 partners from 8 member states - 6 universities, 6 institutes, 1 technological center and 8 industrial companies.
A large portion of the Superconducting Materials and Large Scale Nanostructures (SUMAN) group are present at the European Conference of Applied Superconductivity (EUCAS) 2017 that takes place in Geneva between 17-21 September. Dr. Anna Palau gave an Invited Talk on "European progress toward nanostructure engineering in coated conductors".
