The next BeMAGIC network event will be organized by GTECM in Innsbruck, Austria, from 13 to 16 December 2022. This workshop will focus on innovation, entrepreneurship and marketable products using magnetoelectric technology. The first day of the meeting will be devoted to the presentations of the ESRs. Each ESR will deliver a 10-minutes (+ 5 minutes for questions and discussion) presentation to explain their research progress. The scientific lectures will take place on Wednesday 14 and Friday 16 in the afternoon and the practical sessions on Thursday 15 in the morning. The training in soft skills is intended to prepare the ESRs to apply for a position. They will be requested to prepare the application documents for one of the offered positions (i.e., CV and letter of interest) and they will participate in a mock interview for the selected position on the morning of Wednesday 14.
The BeMAGIC partners from G.TEC are organizing the Brain-Computer Interface and Neurotechnology Spring School, which will take place online on 12-21 April 2021. The event offers 95 hours of online education about brain-computer interfaces and neurotechnologies and participants will receive a 10 ECTS certificate for attendance. For more detailed information on the event, such as the programme and the registration procedure, please visit the web.
The BeMAGIC team from the University of Cambridge, led by Prof. Judith Driscoll, has prepared a video to present their research project in the Cambridge Festival which will take place online from 26 March to 4 April, 2021. The new interdisciplinary Cambridge Festival (replacing the Cambridge Science Festival and the Cambridge Festival of Ideas) is the United Kingdom's largest free science festival. It will include more than 350 free online events and activities: from panel discussions, film premieres, and self-guided walking tours, to ‘try this at home’ activities for the whole family. Topics cover the breadth of Cambridge research and will be presented across the Festival’s four themes: Society, Health, Environment and Explore! The video prepared by our partners from the University of Cambridge is shown in the following link: https://vimeo.com/519877530
The next BeMAGIC workshop, organized by the University of Cambridge, will take place online on 7-9 April 2021 (workshop) and 10-11 May 2021 (training in soft skills). This event will gather together all the BeMAGIC ESRs and the network members of the Beneficiary institutions and Partner Organizations. The first day of the workshop will be devoted to the presentations of the ESRs. Each of them will deliver a 10 minutes talk (+ 5 minutes questions/discussion) to present their research results. Several scientific and training lectures are scheduled on 8-9 April and the training in soft skills will take place on 10-11 May. The training in soft skills, delivered by ThePaperMill, will be focused on scientific publishing and how to read a paper. Further information on the event, such as the agenda and the registration fees procedure, are provided below.
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.
The BeMAGIC Project Manager, Dr. Jordi Malapeira, has recently participated in the 3rd ITN PMs meeting. This event, which gathers together Project Managers to discuss and share experiences about the implementation of ITNs (Innovative Training Networks), took place online on Tuesday, 5 October 2021 at 10:00 CET. The main aspects tackled during this meeting were: outreach and dissemination activities, training courses and potential collaborations between ITNs. Besides the ITN Project Managers, Fernanda Bajanca, Vice Chair of the MCAA (Marie Curie Alumni Association) and Hakim Ferria, leader of the MSCA European Project Managers group, also participated in the meeting. The purpose of their participation was to enhance collaboration and explore potential joint actions between ITN PMs, MCAA and the MSCA European PMs group.
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 Winter School will be organized by ETHZ in Zurich (Zunfthaus zur Zimmerleuten) on 8-12 November 2021. This event, entitled: Magnetoelectricy in biomedicine: healthcare for the 21st century, will gather together the ESRs and the senior researchers of the network. The most important goals of the meeting are to train the ESRs and to enhance networking among the members of the project. For these purposes, the following activities have been scheduled: (i) presentations of the ESRs, (ii) scientific lectures, (iii) training is transferable skills on scientific writing and (iv) management session.

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.
