The kick-off Meeting of SELECTA will be held on 5-6 March 2015 at "Campus Hotel" in Bellaterra. Representatives of both Beneficiary and Associated Partners will attend the event.
Welcome remarks will be given by the Chancellor and the Vice-Chancellor of UAB. Several aspects of the Network including management, recruitment and dissemination, and training, among others will be tackled.
Prof. Jordi Sort has been awarded ERC Consolidator Grant from the European Research Council. His project entitled "Merging Nanoporous Materials with Energy-Efficient Spintronics (SPIN-PORICS)" aims to integrate engineered nanoporous materials into novel spintronic applications. This Project tackles the development of a new type of nanocomposite material, comprising an electrically conducting or semiconducting nanoporous layer filled with a suitable dielectric material, where the magnetic properties of the metal/semiconductor will be largely tuned at room temperature by simply applying a voltage, via electric charge accumulation. The obtained results are likely to open new paradigms in the field of spintronics and will be of high economic transcendence.
