We are happy to announce that the workshop "Materials for Energy Applications through Neutron and X-Ray Eyes” will be held in Göteborg on the 22nd and 23rd of May 2017 at Chalmers University of Technology, Göteborg, Sweden.

The workshop is jointly arranged by the Interreg project MAX4ESSFUN and the Nordforsk Network on Functional Materials. 

The scope of the workshop is to highlight possibilities for investigating materials targeted for application in next generation energy technologies, including batteries, fuel cells, solar cells, and thermoelectrics. In particular there is a focus on the new capabilities offered by MAXIV and ESS.  

The workshop is free of charge (including lunches, coffee breaks and dinners). In addition, the first 20 PHD students or postdocs from outside Göteborg to register bringing a poster will have free accommodation (apply in webshop).

Please register through this link

Registration deadline is 28th April 2017.

We in particular encourage participants to bring a poster and all posters will be presented at the speakers' corner.
