Bordeaux Summer School - Advanced materials for energy storage and conversion

As a result of the ongoing sanitary crisis with the COVID-19 pandemic, the University of Bordeaux announces the postponement of the 2020 edition of the Bordeaux Summer Schools until 2021. The current situation means that the program cannot be organized while respecting the health and safety of its participants, nor can it propose a high-quality educational environment, as initially promised. Additionally, many of the Bordeaux Summer School speakers are now participating in research and innovation programs that have been launched to fight the pandemic as well as its socio-economic effects. Such programs will be a priority for the University of Bordeaux in the coming months.

For those who have already applied to a Bordeaux Summer School, please check your email inbox for more information.

Please note that our summer school websites will be updated as soon as possible with further details regarding this postponement.

We thank you for your understanding and hope to see you in Bordeaux in 2021.

Research in the field of renewable energies has greatly intensified due to decreasing fossil energy resources and an increase in greenhouse gas concentration (in particular carbon dioxide).

Throughout this summer school, the problems linked to the collection of renewable energies (photovoltaic, wind, etc.), their transformation (producing hydrogen, etc.) and their storage (supercapacitors, batteries, etc.) will be analyzed.

Issues related to the systems needing to be implemented for such procedures with renewable energies will also be covered.

"Since the advent of the industrial era, energy has always been a subject of primary importance. It is therefore crucial for young researchers to grasp the latest developments in this sector.”
