FASTGRID project meeting – technical exchange hosted by ICMAB-CSIC

During the 19 and 20th October, the FASTGRID consortium has celebrated its 3rd Project Meeting – Technical Exchange in Bellaterra at Spain in UAB Hotel Campus. The meeting was co-organized by KIT and ICMAB-CSIC and the presentations of the partners were organized by work packages.

From ICMAB: Xavier Obradors (WP1 leader) made a summary of the progress of WP1 and Cornelia Pop and Pedro Barusco made presentations about their last results obtained in the framework of the H2020 project.

During the meeting a Labtour visit of ICMAB was organized

The project meeting was very well received and appreciated by all the consortium members. In total, 12 research institutions, universitites and industry partners participated in the 2 day meeting with 40 members in all. Contributions from each project partner were presented followed by lengthy discussion sessions. Parallel work package sessions, one on materials and one on devices, were held on the second day for effective collaborations between partners involved from all across europe to coordinate their research work. This project meeting brings us closer to enabling stronger technological exchange between the partners to make the achievement of advanced HTS REBCO tapes and HVFCLs a reality of the foreseeable future.

Thank you to all the partners who made this event a success!
