contributed by Eden Mamut

Constanta, Romania, 20-24 September, 2021
Summer School Chair: Prof. dr. Eden Mamut, Institute for Nanotechnologies and Alternative Sources of Energy, “Ovidius” University of Constanta, Romania

The IEEE Nanotechnology Council approved the organisation of a five-day summer school dedicated to researchers, professors and students, hosted by the Institute for Nanotechnologies and Alternative Sources of Energy (INAES), located at the „Ovidius” University of Constanta, from 20th to 24th September 2021.

The Summer School was chaired by Prof. dr. Eden Mamut, INAES Director. The organization, administration, clerical works and formalities have been assured by Andreea-Iuliana Presura and the team from the Institute for Nanotechnologies and Alternative Energy Sources from Ovidius University of Constanta.

The theme of the school was „Nanomaterials and Nanotechnologies for Advanced Energy Systems”. The aim of the organizers was to provide a holistic approach in developing “safe-by-design” advanced energy systems integrating nanomaterials and nanotechnologies and using multiscale and multiphysics modeling and optimization for performance improvement, reduction of environmental impact and the substitution of critical materials. The advanced energy systems that have been taking into consideration were biomass boilers, fuel cells, thermoelectric convertors, PV and hybrid solar panels and electro-opto-chemical reactors.
