MatISSE/JPNM workshop on cross-cutting issues in structural materials R&D for future energy systems

Please SAVE THE DATES for the MatISSE workshop to be held on 25, 26 November 2015 in Petten, The Netherlands

When: Wednesday 25-11-2015 09:00 – Thursday 26-11-2015 15:00
Where: Institute for Energy and Transport, Petten, The Netherlands

Structural and functional materials are key for the development & implementation of low-carbon, clean, efficient and reliable energy technologies. Although different energy systems such as renewables (wind, photovoltaics, etc), nuclear and “clean” fossil technologies, have different challenges, there are also many cross-cutting issues and needs.

The purpose of this Workshop, organised within the EU-FP7 project MaTISSE, is to discuss the status of structural materials R&D for future energy systems and particularly to identify common topics and sharing knowledge between different technologies.

This two-day Workshop will address four cross-cutting issues:

  • High temperature applications:

    – Steels and metallic alloys

    – Ceramics

  • Compatibility with liquid metals
  • Design Codes
  • Advanced steels: development and manufacturing.
