Our PASSENGER team from IMDEA Nanoscience participated in the City and Science Biennial, held between 21-26 February at the Círculo de Bellas Artes in Madrid. The event focused on how we can improve life in the cities of Madrid and Barcelona, covering a wide range of topics from AI and Robots to 3DPrinting, Acoustic and Sound, and many more.
PhD students Jorge Vergara, Adrián Fernández, and Dr. Andrés Martín-Cid had the opportunity to present the scope of the PASSENGER project to a non-expert but highly engaged young audience and explain how magnets can lead to a greener technological future. With their expertise in ferrites and MnAl alloys, they also explained why alternative options to rare earth permanent magnets are of critical importance for all citizens and how we plan to develop and integrate them in applications related to electromobility and energy.
