Université de Bordeaux

Timetable & learning outcomes

This summer school will train future leaders in the field of energy materials for energy conversion and storage. Practical sessions as well as a capstone will be organised, thus complementing theoretical sessions.

The presence of industrial stakeholders will allow participants to benefit from a practical and engineering science-based approach to teaching.
