15th December 2022. 10:30 am. UPC's Vèrtex Building Auditorium + Gardens & Virtual

We are looking forward to celebrating the BSC staff annual meeting this year.

As in the previous edition, the event will be online and shorter.

The event will begin on December 15th at 10:30 am. We will send you a link nearer the time so you can connect.

Even more than normal, we hope that as many BSC staff as possible will be able to attend and participate.

You can participate by telling us:

What you would like to know about?

Let us know which subjects you find interesting to be incorporated into the BSC directors’ presentations.
Deadline exceeded

What would you like to listen to?

What you would like to share?

We would like to know more about your work, so we have booked one hour of the Annual Meeting to listen to 6 BSC employees that will explain what they do. We encourage you to be one of them.

What I would like to explain

Coming soon

 BSC Talks

We have booked time for 6 employees to explain in 6 minutes what you do at BSC.

The event will be VIRTUAL but the BSC Talks will be presented from the studio where the event is taking place.

We would like you to make short, attractive presentations (6 minutes) so all the BSC staff know what you do.

You could be one of those to go up the stage, and we will help you to prepare it.

What will you need to do?

  1. Let us know about what you would like to explain.
    • Send us a short video (landscape) of 45 seconds’ maximum explaining what you would like to present at
    • State your name, department, research group and a provisional title for your talk.
    • Deadline: November 29th.
  2. All the BSC staff will vote for the 6 most interesting proposals.
    • All videos will be available at the web page and the voting process will be open. Each employee will be able to vote up to 3 proposals.
  3. If your proposal is one of the chosen ones:
    • A training session will be organized for the 6 most voted.
  4. Prepare a 6 minutes’ presentation.
  5. The best presentation of December 15th will be awarded!

Directors’ presentation of 2022

We would like to know what subjects you are interested in so as to incorporate them in the directors’ presentation of the center. Fill in this form with your questions.


José Lorenzo holds a MSc in Industrial Engineering from Universidad de Sevilla (2014) with a specialization in Industrial Electronics. His MSc Thesis focused on the study of preconditioning techniques for large sparse linear systems of equations arising when solving the stationary convection-diffusion equation at high Péclet number by means of the Finite Element Method. During two years he worked at the CERN Magnets Group developing numerical models and codes to predict normal-zone propagation in the Nb3Sn cables that will be used to wind coils for the LHC High-Luminosity upgrade. He joined the Fusion Group at BSC in 2019 to participate in the development of an Alya module to simulate High-Temperature Superconductors for Fusion applications making use of HPC resources efficiently. In 2020 he has been granted with a EUROfusion Engineering Grant to carry out the project Structural Assessment of DEMO Magnets.


  • MSc in Industrial Engineering from Universidad de Sevilla (2014).


José's research focuses on the numerical modeling and analysis of a wide range of aspects related to Applied Superconductivity and Superconducting Magnets: from the study of thermal stability and quench propagation in Low-Temperature Superconducting (LTS) cables for particle accelerator magnets, the electromagnetic modeling of High-Temperature Superconducting (HTS) tapes, to the mechanical analysis of large coils to confine the plasma in Fusion reactors. His interests cover the study and coding of complex numerical methods to approximate the solution of differential equations modeling the aforementioned phenomena.
