Where: Pilsen House in Brussels, Brussels (Belgium)


Czech Liaison Office for Research, Development and Innovation (CZELO) and its partners are pleased#### to announce that the eleventh Science Café, an unconventional open discussion with scientist, will take place on 23 October 2018 in the Pilsen House in Brussels.

Our guest will be Tomáš Jungwirth, a recognized scientist in the field of Spintronics that is behind the virtually unlimited data storage on the internet. The fields of expertise of Tomáš Jungwirth are condensed matter physics, materials science, electronic properties of nanostructures, quantum Hall effects, ferromagnetic, and antiferromagnetic spintronic devices. Recently, Tomáš Jungwirth has contributed to discoveries of new magnetic materials potentially suitable in ultrafast memories for digital or neuromorphic computing. In 2011 he was awarded an ERC Advanced Grant in the field of spintronics - Spintronics based on relativistic phenomena in systems with zero magnetic moment. He is a member of the ERC Scientific Council and a member of the Research and Development Council of the Government of the Czech Republic. In 2004 Tomáš Jungwirth was appointed a Professor-Chair at the University of Nottingham, UK and in 2007 a Head of the Department of Spintronics and Nanoelectronics of the Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences in Prague.

The debate will be followed by a glass of wine. More about our guest here and registration as the link below.

Science Café is jointly organized by the CZELO, Czech Centre Brussels, Representation of the South Moravian Region to the EU, Representation of the Pilsen region in Brussels, Delegation of Prague to the EU and Embassy of the Czech Republic to the Kingdom
of Belgium.
