In person (by prior registration)

Opportunity science: GPS and extreme meteorology

By Ramon Padullés Rulló, Institute of Space Sciences (ICE-CSIC) and Institute of Space Studies of Catalonia (IEEC).

What are the limits in the prediction of extreme rainfall events? How does climate change affect these phenomena? Will they become more frequent? Find answers to these questions thanks to the advantages offered by the GPS system. Find out how this technology can be harnessed for applications in meteorological research.

Beyond the limits of batteries

By Juan Carlos González Rosillo, Energy Research Institute of Catalonia (IREC), a beneficiary of the TECNIOspring Plus / Industry (Marie Curie Actions) programme of ACCIÓ-Generalitat de Catalunya.

Batteries are at the heart of the revolution in sectors such as automotive and the Internet of Things in an increasingly digitised world. How can we create large batteries and at the same time very small batteries to meet the needs of this revolution? Discover the great promise to meet this challenge: solid-state batteries.

New materials for the energy transition

By Pamela Machado, Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC).

Advancing in the transition towards a sustainable and renewable energy model requires finding new alternative and economical materials. How is research in this field applied to solar energy progressing? In this talk you will discover new materials that can transform the sun's energy into electricity more efficiently than current silicon-based materials.

Presented by Claudia Diviu, with the collaboration of the Associació Catalana de Comunicació Científica (ACCC).
