International School of Solid State Physics13-19 July 2016
The International School of Solid State Physics with the 5th Course on "Materials for Energy and Sustainability-V"and the 3rd Course of the "EPS-SIF International School on Energy" will be organised on 13-19 July 2016 at the Ettore Majorana Foundation and Centre for Scientific Culture in Erice, Italy
The aim of the School is to present the state-of-the-art and the future perspectives for materials applied to the generation and storage of renewable and sustainable energy. Lectures will be given by some of the most recognized academic and industrial experts, merging physics, chemistry and engineering knowledge in several fields. A general overview of the global energy landscape will be presented by discussing also conventional energy sources and next generation nuclear production. Topics of the school are: the global warming issue, conventional and sustainable technologies, solar energy conversion (PV and thermal), thermoelectric energy conversion, solar fuels, wind energy conversion, fuel cells, storage and vehicles. The School will be a great opportunity for students and postdoctoral fellows from around the world to meet with and learn from their peers, and established experts in a friendly atmosphere, reaping benefit in terms of enthusiasm, knowledge and new ideas and benefitting the future of mankind.
Please note that the event is open only to selected participants and the number of attendees is limited. The selection will be based on the CV and the references.
