Dear colleagues

Since last time we met at SHIFT 2017, it´s been tough years for everyone. Pandemic, lockdowns, war....But we keep hope. We have gathered here again at Tenerife to share the best of our science. We are really proud to present this impressive program which has been possible because each of you! It is really an honor and privilege to welcome you in person at Tenerife, around 80 universities of 29 countries. Let us meet, share our time and discuss science together again. Let us SHIFT!
It will be an unforgettable week with a quite attractive scientific content, completely assured with your outstanding participation, and also with a stunning social program. We are convinced that SHIFT 2022 implies also the importance of returning to scientific in-person meetings! Scientific conferences have been, and will continue to be, instrumental in the progress of science. It is not only about the talks, the papers published, the posters, the presentations. It is about the personal face-to-face encounters, the discussions during the coffee breaks, by the networking lunches and the gala dinner. It is that brilliant idea or those synergies that could appear sharing the Conference lunch during the excursion to El Teide volcano National Park or during a nice walk through the historical UNESCO World Heritage venue city of La Laguna. Unexpected inspiring ideas and connections, new visions, new approaches are gestated in those moments. Shining a light on biomedical and energy applications: with news insights into the biomedical field to “cure the people”, and with groundbreaking achievements in renewable energies to “heal the world”, with attention to critical raw materials and strategic minerals. You are making the SHIFT possible! Let us SHIFT again after these uncertain times! SCIENCE will lead the way!

Thank you very much on behalf of my colleagues at the Organizing Committee
