ETE 2017 - Workshop on Emerging Technologies for Energy

...

Scope: Sustainable energy is an indispensable component of the necessary portfolio of low-carbon technologies for climate change mitigation towards a circular economy.
The pioneering Workshop on Emerging Technologies for Energy: Towards a Circular Economy aims to foster a discussion forum on the state-of-the-art and emerging technologies for energy applications and raise awareness on the importance of clean energy towards a sustainable future. Moreover, it aims to strengthen contacts between academia, technology transfer centers and industry, to build up new partnerships and networks.

The program includes several KEYNOTES and INVITED TALKS by leading experts from Academia and Industry in the fields of Solar Energy, Energy Harvesting, Energy from Biomass, Electrochemical Energy Conversion, Electrochemical Energy Storage, Fuel Cells and Electrolyzers.

The Organizing Committee encourages the participation of all stakeholders, researchers and students working in these fields.

This workshop is inserted within the activities of the FCT UT Austin|Portugal program and will target the latest breakthroughs and innovation trends on Emerging Technologies for Energy by Academia and Industry, particularly focusing on the abovementioned Energy topics as key points in the context of Sustainability and Circular Economy.

The workshop will be held in the vibrant city of Porto, Portugal, from 18 to 20 December 2017, at the Faculty of Sciences of University of Porto.
