Highlights from the ECMetAC Days 2022

Annual meeting ECMetAC-Days 2022, was organized in person in Split from November 21 to 24, 2022. The European Integrated Center for the Development of New Metal Alloys and Compounds (ECMetAC) is comprised of 21 universities or national research institutes. The main objective of the center is promotion of collaborative research in material science where all partners have access to a world-level facilities for materials preparation, single crystal growth, material modeling at high performance computing centers, structural characterization, and state of the art techniques in solid state physics research. While Institute of Physics, Zagreb is member of the center from its founding, PMF Zagreb and PMF Split joined latter which resulted in formation of a Croatian ECMetAC node.  

Croatian scientists had notable role in the meeting this year with 14 contributions (please see the list below). It is worth mentioning that “The young scientist best oral presentation” was awarded to Priyanka Reddy from PMF Zagreb for the talk “Murunskite: a bridge between cuprates and pnictides”.
