90 IUVSTA Workshop : Tuning properties of advanced energy materials using modern theoretical and experimental methods 


This IUVSTA workshop is a key enabling technology event ( KET - Key Enabling Technology: nanotechnologies, advanced materials and advanced processing ) based on the interdisciplinary expertise of theoretical and experiment groups covering areas such as solar energy, solar thermal, batteries and the development and optimization of advanced innovative and efficient systems in the area of intelligent materials for energy, from fundamentals to advanced quantum engineering processes. 

This specific and timely thematic of the workshop as well as its innovative operational approach will promote interdisciplinary research activities, the training of human resources and will offer an efficient networking model for establishing effective and fruitful future collaborations. 

The main topics of this workshop are:


  • Processing and Devices of High Efficiency Solar Cells
  • Halide Perovskites for Photovoltaic Applications
  • Silicon for Photovoltaics
  • Thermoelectric Energy Conversion
  • Challenges in Battery Technologies 
  • Materials for Safe Electrochemical Energy Storage
  • Green Electrochemical Energy Storage 
  • Materials, Processes and Devices

Major Renewable Sources : solar, biomass, hydroelectric.wind, Batteries, Green Electrochemical Energy Storage, and others.

The target of this scientific event is to promote effective interdisciplinary solutions to optimize energy materials using theoretical and experimental state-of-the-art techniques. 

The optimization of these materials will successfully consolidate innovative energy sources able to give solution to the major energy societal problems of nowadays.
