On 27 June, group members Julio Gutiérrez and Mary Kate Chessey attended a Materials Square webinar (#118) titled, “Machine learning interatomic potentials for modelling radiation damage,” with invited speaker Professor Kai Nordlund of Computational Materials Physics from the University of Helsinki, Finland.
On May 30th, our Fusion Group had the pleasure of organizing a training webinar on technology transfer for all the partners of the FusionCAT consortium. After two years of intensive work on several assets within the project, the time to explore collaborations with the industry partners is getting closer. This webinar set the basis for the best exploitation strategies for doing so.
Fusion Group members Tomas Bensadon and Adriana Ghiozzi participated in the 48th edition of the European Physical Society Conference on Plasma Physics. The event was held online due to continued concerns about the pandemic but featured a lively and fruitful dialogue nevertheless, with 612 attendees joining from countries both within and outside of Europe.
Our group attended for the first time the European Congress on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences and Engineering (ECCOMAS Congress 2022) in its 8th edition which took place in Oslo during the second week of June. This year’s congress is hosted by the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), together with SINTEF and the Nordic Association for Computational Mechanics in Engineering (NOACM).
