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.

The next Nanomaterials-meeting will be held on Tuesday April 29th (2014) in Carre room 2L from 9.00 till 16.00.

SPM Workshop with Agilent Technologies and SRO ‘Enabling Technologies’

Scanning Probe Microscopy for Nanomaterials for Energy, Electrochemistry and Beyond (Information)

Schedule:

The Nanomaterials-meeting will be held from 11.00 till 12.00 on the following dates:

May 29th 2014, TBA
