Professor Joan Ramon Morante, head of the IREC’s Advanced Materials for Energy Area has organised the symposium “Materials for Future Energy” within the framework of the conference Future Materials for Grand Challenges of Our Time (FUMAT 2011)

"Future Materials for Grand Challenges of Our Time (FUMAT 2011)" is a leading conference in the field of materials. It will bring together stakeholders from the scientific community, industry and policy makers from all over Europe, who will discuss future materials and their potential for solving some of the major challenges faced by society.

As part of the conference, a number of symposia will be run on topics related to areas in which materials are able to play a key role. In this framework, professor Joan Ramon Morante, head of the IREC’s Advanced Materials for Energy Area has organised and will chair the symposium “Materials for Future Energy”, which will focus on the need to develop new materials for applications in the energy sector, with special emphasis placed on new “green” technologies, such as solar energy, biofuels, the use of hydrogen and geothermal energy. The way to make traditional sources of energy such as coal and oil more sustainable will also be discussed.

FUMAT 11 will take place in Warsaw, Poland, on 22 and 23 September.

The minister Francesc Xavier Mena and the EU commissioner Johannes Hahn reaffirmed Catalonia’s commitment to the energy sector on their visit to the IREC

European RD projectsThe minister expressed his thanks to the European Commission for its vote of confidence to Catalonia’s research projects and he highlighted the importance of cooperation in Europe on energy policies.  Commissioner Hahn announced that the EU could allocate up to 1,500 million euros for cohesion and development projects to Catalonia in the 2014–2020 period.

The minister for Enterprise and Labour, Francesc Xavier Mena, accompanied the EU commissioner for Regional Policy, Johannes Hahn, on a visit today to the Catalonia Institute for Energy Research (IREC) to see the progress made on the building work of the new building and laboratories that the organisation will have on the Diagonal-Besòs Campus in Barcelona. The EU is providing a total of 16 million euros in funding for both the construction of this new facility and for laboratory equipment in the IREC’s Tarragona headquarters through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).  

Minster Mena pointed out that the IREC is proof of the government’s commitment to “position Catalonia as a leading region in energy innovation and research projects”, and to make the energy sector a driving force in Catalonia’s economy. The minister for Enterprise and Labour went on to highlight that on the question of finding energy solutions, there was a genuine desire to contribute to European cohesion and he added that “it is clear in the minds of everyone who works at the IREC that this matter must be addressed: our research must provide viable first-rate solutions that will benefit all of our European partners”.

Dr Josep Carreras, leader of the IREC’s Lighting Group, to act as chairman of the session “Photometry and colorimetry of LED lighting fixtures, from design to products”, in the framework of the conference ForumLED Europe

Forum LED EuropeThe ForumLED event will be held on December 7 and 8 in Lyon, France. This is an international conference and exhibition that focuses on innovative LED technology. ForumLED is a touch point for the main stakeholders from the world of research, the LED industry and leading companies in the lighting sector.
During the conference, the guest speakers, drawn from both public institutions and the senior management of the industry’s leading businesses, will be given the opportunity to expound on the sector’s major strategic short-term requirements, insofar as the research and innovation of related technologies are concerned. The conference will deal with innovative concepts in LED technology by focusing on market trends and its introduction to distribution chains.
An exhibition will also be staged at the same time as the conference that will endeavour to cover the whole of the value chain of the lighting sector. Over 80 companies will showcase their latest developments and new LED applications.

IREC announces the release of the Call of tenders for an architectural design competition for the new headquarters of IREC at Campus Diagonal Besòs.


Important information: Modification of procurement documents. See Contacting Party Profile

IREC seeks to build a new building on the Diagonal Campus Besòs multifunctional and flexible which will become the new headquarters of IREC to house its research activities. The building must be an example of bioclimatic architecture in the Mediterranean with highly replicable solutions. The building should become referent in terms of the solutions adopted regarding energy efficiency, use of innovative materials, use of local resources and new technologies, and the integration of renewable energy systems. The building should be an example of Net Zero Energy Building - NZEB following integrated design energy principles.
