SEVERO OCHOA SUMMER SCHOOL
ON MATERIALS FOR ENERGY

PROGRAMME

TOPICS

The Severo Ochoa summer school “Materials for Energy” is addressed to last year undergraduate, master and PhD students, who are interested in the development of materials with energy applications. The aim of the summer school is to present the design, development and application of new materials for a wide range of energy applications.


TOPICS:

  • Functional and advanced nanomaterials for a clean and sustainable energy production, conversion, storage and transport
  • Materials for energy conversion
    • Photovoltaics
    • Thermoelectric materials
  • Materials for energy storage
    • Next generation bateries
    • Supercapacitors
  • Materials for energy transport
    • Superconducting materials
  • Life Cycle Analysis of materials for energy
  • Advanced characterization techniques of energy materials

The school includes lectures from international and local scientists, hands on and management activities. As a consequence, this Scientific School is an optimal opportunity to discover, learn and practice on material science focusing on fundamental science and applied research in the field of energy. The school is included in the Severo Ochoa activities of the center.
