24th International conference on solid state ionics

The focus of this conference will be how to promote basic research, materials discovery and materials processing for application in the electrochemical devices urgently needed to achieve the green energy transition. We will also focus on the advanced characterisation and modelling techniques necessary to support and accelerate this process. Finally we will cover the application in to a range of devices including novel applications in electronics.

SUNRISE: Powering Green Recovery

Held on September 2021.


The theme for this symposium was ‘Powering Green Recovery’, and included a technology showcase session, as well as sessions on PV, social science, and industry. With the effects of the pandemic being felt across the globe and the approach of COP26, thoughts have turned to how we can best stimulate a recovery that benefits the environment, the economy, and people. At SUNRISE, we aimed to contribute to a global green recovery through researching and delivering innovative renewable energy solutions through our global collaboration of leading research teams and industries.

Our own projects

Valencia’s port expansion to debate

Held during the months of June and July 2020

The expansion of Valencia’s port is, since 1886, a topic that causes controversy due to the difficult equilibrium between economic expansion and sustainability, between the expansion of ways of transport and the protection of the environment. Fundació Scito and Càtedra Territorial Valenciana invited the principal agents involved to debate about the project.

Climate change impact on the environment and Valencian society. Effects, mitigation and adaptation.

Held on May 2020

CCliVal is an online conference that brought together experts and citizens to analyse the impact and effects of climate change in our environment. There were four main topics: environmental effects, administrative management by public institutions, environmental education, and social awareness on climate change.

Electron Beam Spectroscopy for Nano-Optics

Held on June 2021


The research area of nanophotonics, the study of light at the nanoscale, has experienced a dramatic growth in the recent years. To further advance this field, it is essential to develop novel characterization techniques that are able to generate, probe and control light at length scales far below the diffraction limit of light. Different studies were discussed in this event were professionals of the field participated.
