The 712. W.E. Heraeus Seminar on Energy Efficient Magnetoelectric Materials by Ionic Approaches (26.-29.01.2020) in Bad Honnef/Germany brought together worldwide leading scientists and young researchers to provide a forum for an overview of the current understanding of ionic effects in magnetoelectric materials. Fundamental ionic mechanisms and their correlation with magnetic phenomena, utilization of the spatial resolution achieved by advanced interface-sensitive measurement techniques, and routes toward the implementation of nanodevices were covered.
We sincerely thank the W.E. Heraeus Foundation for financing this seminar.
The research group led by Prof. Jordi Sort, BeMAGIC Coordinator (UAB), has been recently awarded the 12th Duran Farell Prize in Technological Research. The Duran Farell Prize is awarded every two years by the Social Council of Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) with the collaboration of the gas company Gas Natural Fenosa. The research project awarded, entitled: “Voltage-Control of magnetism in nanoscale-engineered materials: a new concept for energy-efficient data storage”, seeks to solve one of the most important challenges faced by modern society: the energy needed for large scale data storage. The project consists in using voltage instead of intensity in order to record information on electronic storage devices, so as drastically to reduce thermal dissipation caused by the Joule effect. New materials with optimised microstructures at nanoscale level were developed, new protocols on how to act on these materials through voltage and a new design for the devices were created. In addition to a drastic reduction in energy loss in these processes, the application of voltage when registering information in the devices' memory also makes them safer and more robust.

Two members of the BeMAGIC project, namely Prof. Judith Driscoll (UCAM) and Prof. Jordi Sort (UAB), are involved in the organization of an AIP Publishing Horizons conference entitled “Materials Challenges for Memory”. This conference will cover the materials challenges of different memory technologies, from the fundamental processes and mechanisms, to industry perspectives on materials specifications and manufacturing. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, Materials Challenges for Memory will be a virtual conference.

The BeMAGIC kick-off meeting will be held on 28-29 November 2019 at “Gran Hotel Rey don Jaime”, Castelldefels (Barcelona), Spain. Representatives of the Beneficiary Partners and the Partner Organizations will gather together to discuss several aspects concerning the implementation of the project. During the event, the Coordinator team (UAB) will present the Project and the representatives of the network institutions will introduce their research teams and their role within the network. Besides, several sessions are scheduled to tackle the project management, financial aspects, recruitment process, dissemination, outreach and training.
