Abstract:
4-9 July 2010

Universitätszentrum Obergurgl, Obergurgl, Austria

Nanotechnology for Sustainable Energy

Strasbourg Cedex, France | Posted on March 10th, 2010

Chair: Michael Graetzel, Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale, CH
Vice-Chair: Jean-Marie Tarascon, Université Picardie Jules Verne, FR
Assited by: K. Kalyanasundaram, Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale, CH

Topical areas covered by this conference are those where Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (N&N) will, or may, have an impact on the development of a sustainable energy system, including environmental aspects. The conference includes both basic science of relevance for energy/environmental technology and more application oriented research. The objective is to gather experts in the respective fields at one conference, with the aim to make both an inventory and exposure of the state-of-the-art N&N based energy research, technologies and opportunities.

We thereby hope to foster scientific excellence in this area, to identify synergies between disciplines and people, and to catalyze global contacts and collaborations among world leading experts and laboratories. The conference has a strong educational character in as much as it shall provide a younger generation of researchers with a vision, as well as the knowledge and tools to realize this vision.

About European Science Foundation
The European Science Foundation (ESF) is an association of 79 member organisations devoted to scientific research in 30 European countries. Since we were established in 1974, we have coordinated a wide range of pan-European scientific initiatives, and our flexible organisation structure means we can respond quickly to new developments.

ESF's core purpose is to promote high quality science at a European level.

The ESF is committed to facilitating cooperation and collaboration in European science on behalf of its principal stakeholders (Member Organisations and Europe's scientific community). This cross-border activity combines both 'top-down' and 'bottom-up' approaches in the long-term development of science.

The Foundation is committed to providing scientific leadership through its networking expertise and by ensuring that there is a European added value to all of its initiatives and projects.
