On 22-23 April 2010, a conference on Spain-ISTC/STCU Cooperation was organized by the Research Centre for Energy, Environment and Technology (CIEMAT) in Madrid, Spain. The conference was opened by Mr. Cayetano Lopez (CIEMAT Director General) and Mr. Juan Francisco Reyes Sanchez (Director of Aerospace Programs at the Centre for the Development of Industrial Technology, CDTI). The conference was organized by CIEMAT, the CDTI, and the CSIC (Centre for Higher Science Research), with support from the STCU and the International Science and Technology Center (ISTC). A total of 35 scientists from Ukraine, Georgia, Russia, and Belarus were sponsored by STCU and ISTC, to promote scientific cooperation with the European Union (with a special emphasis on Spain). The Plenary Session was attended by STCU Deputy Executive Director (EU) Michel Zayet as well as ISTC Executive Director Adriaan van der Meer.
On the second day, three parallel thematic sessions were organized for more presentations and discussions with potential partners. The main themes had been identified according to common scientific interests between CIS and Spanish research communities: space and aeronautics technologies, nanotechnologies (multidisciplinary areas); and advanced nuclear reactors, high energy physics, accelerators, etc.
CIEMAT recently signed an STCU Partner Project, and may follow up with a new STCU Partner Project in early 2011.
