Summer school on “Ionic and protonic conducting ceramic membranes for green energy applications”


AMPEA researchers involved in the sub-programme on materials (the coordinators being Prof. José M. Serra (CSIC-UPV) and Dr. Wilhelm A. Meulenberg (FZJ)) organize a summer school which will be dedicated to Ionic and protonic conducting ceramic membranes for green energy applications and is organized in the frame of GREN-CC, ELECTRA and HETMOC FP7 European Projects.
It will take place from 23rd to 25th September 2015 in Valencia (Spain)

The addressed topics are:

  • Fundamentals of ionic conducting materials
  • Oxygen transport membranes
  • Protonic conducting materials
  • Membrane manufacturing techniques
  • Scaling up manufacturing
  • Theoretical modelling and simulation
  • Electrochemistry fundamentals
  • Characterisation techniques
  • Catalytic membrane reactors
  • Industrial applications and roundtable

Further information (concerning the scientific program and invited speakers as well as a deadlines calendar and detailed procedures for registration, abstract presentation and accommodation) is now available on-line, on the official symposium web site.

Note that the Registration is already open

Attending students can send an abstract for poster presentation via e-mail . The deadline for abstract submission is August 28th. The European Membrane Society will offer some travel grants for students.
