The workshop will feature a mixture of tutorials and scientific talks presenting some of the latest developments in the field.

Scope of the School

Efficient energy conversion and storage is a key challenge, for which electrochemical devices play a decisive role. This International School covers the fundamentals regarding materials (ionic and mixed conducting materials) and mechanisms (transport, electrochemical reactions, catalysis). It is discussed how solids can be tailored with respect to functions desired in batteries, fuel cells, photovoltaics or large storage devices.


Fundamentals of energy conversion and storage, functional materials (ionic and mixed conductors, catalysts), methods for characterization and modelling, batteries, Fuel Cells (PEM and SOFC), thermochemical storage, photovoltaics, large scale storage, thermoelectrics.
