The SELECTA members from FINK (Faculty of Engineering, Kragujevac), Prof. Nenad Grujovic and Dr. Fatima Zivic, promoted the project through one of the teams participating in the “Students Formula Hungary (SFH)”. This international competition gathers together students from all over the world who fabricate their own formula car and participate in a formula race. The SFH 2017 took place on 17-20 August in Széchenyi István University Campus area, Hungary. The SELECTA partners supported the first participation of students from FINK to this competition and the logo of the SELECTA project was included on their car. Further information about the event is provided in the following website: https://fshungary.com/ and Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/FormulaStudentHungary/
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.
