    17-18 September 2014, Warsaw University of Technology.

    Following the success of the 1st V4+Japan science and technology workshop which was organized by the Slovak Academy of Science, International Visegrad Fund and Japan Science and Technology Agency in July 2013 in Slovakia, the Warsaw University of Technology organized the 2nd V4-JST Workshop on "Advanced Materials“. The Workshop was the satellite event of the annual international conference E-MRS Fall Meeting that is held in Warsaw on 15-19 September 2014 and attracted around 70 participants from Poland, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Hungary and Japan.


    The Workshop was divided into 4 topics:

    1. Materials for extreme environments

    Research fields:  multiphase alloys for application in extreme conditions (high temperatures, radioactive environment, aggressive media), thermal barrier and  ultrahard coatings.

    2. Biomaterials

    Research fields: materials for regenerative medicine, drug delivery systems, surface engineering of medical devices, novel materials for implants, nanomaterials/super molecular materials in medicine and biology/chemical biology, 3D printing.

    3. Materials for electronics and energy harvesting

    Research fields: microelectronic, photovoltaic, thermoelectric, laser technology.

    4. Lightweight construction materials

    Research fields: Light construction materials for machine engineering (foam aluminum, composites with metallic matrix, nanostructured materials, metastable metallic alloys).


    The workshop attracted around 80 participants. There were 26 scientific presentations and 3 technical presentations. During the welcome greetings expressed by Prof. Rajmund Bacewicz, Vice-Rector of Warsaw University of Technology, Mr. Shoichiro Tonomura, Executive Director of JST, Japan, Ms. Malgorzata Wierzejska, Counsellor, Department of Asia and Pacific Region, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Poland, Mr. Hiroshi Matsumoto, Counsellor, Embassy of Japan in Poland, Prof. K.J. Kurzydlowski, Director, National Center for Research and Development, Poland, both V4 and Japan parties underlined that the workshop has a special value of integrating potential and creating additional links and ties between Visegrad Group Countries and Japan. Also, they agreed that Materials Science, which is one of the leading fields of science at the Warsaw University of Technology effectively respond to the various needs of society such as provision of power generation and reduction of dependency on fossil fuels. Materials Science can gain new insight through cooperation with researchers from different countries.
