Friday 21 June the second Netherlands conference on Electrochemical Conversion & Materials (ECCM) will be organized by the ECCM advisory committee, appointed by the Dutch government. The ECCM committee is proud to announce the keynote speakers and invites experts from academia, industry, applied research organisations, government and NGO’s to submit abstracts to contribute to the three thematic parallel sessions of the conference.

The intriguing prospects of molecular electronics, nanotechnology, biomaterials, and the aim to close the gap between synthetic and biological molecular systems are important ingredients to study the cooperative action of molecules in the self-assembly towards functional supramolecular materials and systems. The design and synthesis of well-defined supramolecular architectures require a balanced choice between covalent synthesis and the self-assembly of the fragments prepared.

Nanostructured metals and semiconductors are promising building blocks for next generation solar energy conversion devices at low cost. From the optical perspective, nanostructure (NS) ensembles constitute a new class of metamaterial, where the optical properties of the ensemble are tuned by the individual NS type, geometry and collective arrangement. In the case of solar energy conversion into fuels, nanostructured or layered metal and metal oxide co-catalysts display performances that are morphology and size dependent.

From 11 to 21 June, DIFFER hosts the WPCD code camp for European fusion researchers in the EUROfusion Project on Code Development for Integrated Modelling (WPCD). WPCD supports the achievement of the European Fusion Roadmap at Horizon 2020 goals, via the development of existing modelling codes with a particular focus on integrated modelling. The DIFFER code camp will offer a venue for WPCD members to meet in person and advance the collaborative development of  workflows / verification and validation.

Polymer membranes for gas separation are extensively applied on large scale in many (petro)chemical processes. With the electrification and transition to a circular economy, the number of new applications is expanding, due to their low footprint and low energy consumption for separation. Though as existing membranes are originally designed for other separations, this requires tailoring of membrane performance. In this presentation I will discuss the molecular design of polymer membranes for sustainable process applications.
