MESA+ University of Twente

SRO meetings

The research on energy related topics within MESA+ is expanding fast and various new collaborative projects between research groups are being initiated constantly. Therefore, a monthly meeting of the strategic research orientation 'NanoMaterials for Energy' is organized in which all researchers are able to present their work. In this way the total MESA+ community is informed about the current status of all running energy projects and it provides the possibility to find new research areas for future collaborations.

Each Nanomaterials-meeting consists of two presentations with enough time for discussions.

Schedule:

Currently there are no Nanomaterials-meetings scheduled.
