ECMetAC Days

The main purpose of the ECMetAC Days is to provide comprehensive information on the most recent results achieved within the last year of the ECMetAC Consortium and to discuss directions for future research. Contributions will cover the field of metallic alloys and compounds ranging from basic to application oriented research:

 

  • Development of new metallic alloys and compounds
  • Structure determination, stability
  • Physical, chemical and mechanical properties
  • Surfaces of complex metallic alloys
  • Materials for thermoelectricity and magneto-caloric application
  • Materials for catalysis
  • Coating technologies
  • Complexity in periodic and aperiodic metallic alloys and compounds (theory and experiment)
  • High-entropy alloys

Innovative Researcher: End-User Approach for Scientific Project Designing

  • Kranjska Gora, Slovenia

Innovative Researcher: End-User Approach for Scientific Project Designing Design Sprint (DS) is a methodology for quickly and effectively solving design problems. It draws on design thinking, i.e. creative design of solutions to problems, products and services, as well as other practical methods used in business. It is our wish to apply the DS approach also in science to make researchers more sensitive to end-users needs at the earliest stages of materials and products design and production. The DS process consists of five following stages that use design thinking to reduce risk and negative consequences when bringing a new project/product: understand (definition of the project goal), sketch (sketching of new ideas), decide (selecting the best solution), prototype (raw version of the project) and test (collecting opinions, further works on the product). The DS allows for a fast and cheap prototyping of ideas and their subsequent implementation. This workshop is dedicated to scientists whose research covers all levels of the Technology Readiness Levels (TRLs) starting from observations of basing principles (basic research levels TRL1 - TRL3) by technology validation in relevant environments (development levels TRL4 – TRL6) to demonstrators of prototypes (deployment levels TRL7 – TRL9). During our Workshop, to address such challenges of binding basic scientists with researchers who work at higher TRLs levels under real products we will build multidisciplinary teams. An end-user approach will allow us to study real needs and visualize particular solution and final product that we all use every day. An example of our project may be finding an environmentally friendly heating system to heat up a flat in a tenement house located in an Old Town. For that, participants of our workshop will collect an interview with a flat inhabitant including her/his preferences, financial status, etc. To support our participants in real world solutions, we will focus also on studies of real cases.

ECMetAC Days 2024 in Zagreb

  • Zagreb

ECMetAC Days 2024 will be organized jointly by the Department of Physics, Faculty of Science, University of Zagreb, and the Institute of Physics, Zagreb, Croatia, from November 25 to 28, 2024, at the Institute of Physics in Zagreb. This is the second time that the Institute of Physics has hosted the event after 10 years. This year marks the 15th anniversary of the ECMetAC. The primary purpose of ECMetAC Days is to provide comprehensive information on recent results achieved within the current year of the ECMetAC action and to discuss directions for future research. Contributions will cover research topics related to complex metallic alloys and compounds ranging from basic to application-oriented research: Development of new metallic alloys and compounds Structure determination, stability Physical, chemical, and mechanical properties Surfaces of complex metallic alloys Materials for energy and quantum materials Materials for catalysis Coating technologies Complexity in periodic and aperiodic metallic alloys and compounds (theory and experiment) High-entropy alloys Contributions related to gender mainstreaming in (materials) science will also be most welcome. We look forward to meeting you in Zagreb, Mario Novak and Petar Popčević
