Symposium on Superconductivity and Cryogenics, 9 December 2016
As a follow-up of the event in 2015, the research chair Energy, Materials and Systems organizes a one-day symposium on superconductivity and cryogenics. The symposium takes place on December 9 in building the Gallery at the campus of the University of Twente.
At the symposium, research projects will be presented on superconductivity and cryogenics, in which EMS is participating. Also, part of the day will be focusing on the special research chair of Herman ten Kate within EMS on Industrial Applications of Superconductivity (in Dutch: ITS). Furthermore, the developments concerning the foundation SuperACT will be discussed.
A tentative program is given below.
We are sure this will be an interesting event informing attendees on recent developments in the field of superconductivity and cryogenics and their applications. In addition it will allow attendees to contact potential partners for future industrial or research activities.
Participation is on basis of invitation. In case you are interested, please send an email to EMS@tnw.utwente.nl
