From the 22nd to 24th of June 2016, Eurotapes exhibited at Industrial Technologies 2016 at the RAI in Amsterdam represented by LEITAT. The project had a booth (nº15) there to exhibit latest research activities in the field of superconductors. This event, as it is one of the most important in the field of technologiesa and innovation at European level, was a great occasion to disseminate results and show the innovation capacity of the consortium but also to develop further collaborative projects. Below two pictures of LEITAT team during the exhibition.
Industrial Technologies is the largest networking conference in the field of new production technologies, materials, nanotechnology, biotechnology and digitalisation in Europe, with high level delegates. It is a three days conference with a wide variety of plenary and interactive sessions, inspiring keynote speakers, case studies, eye-opening site visits and numerous opportunities to get in contact with new business partners.
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.
Eurotapes, one of today’s largest European research projects on superconductivity, is showing excellent results for industrial applications in sectors including electricity generation and transmission, magnetic fields for highly advanced research as in CERN and ITER, but also aeronautics and transport.
The 1st module of the training workshop took place in Frankfurt at Bruker headquarters on the 8th of March. A total of 50 participants (young students, scientists, policy-makers, researchers) participated into the training workshop and benefitted from highly-focused training. The topic of the workshop was Superconducting Tapes manufacturing and applications led by Xavier Obradors, Klaus Schlenga, Vital Abächerli, and Ulrich Beta. .
