First workshop on nanostructured materials for light harvesting technologies

IMDEA Materials Institute, Madrid, 25-26 November 2015

This 2-day workshop brings together three networks of European research Institutions to mark the International Year of Light and Light-Based Technologies. Its purpose is to share results, views and challenges in the field of nanostructured materials for energy, with a particular interest in materials and light harvesting technologies and related energy and environmental applications: Solar fuels from artificial photosynthesis (photo- and photo-electrochemical water splitting and CO2 photoreduction), novel photovoltaic architectures and energy storage devices. The meeting is materials-science oriented, and includes topics such as the synthesis of novel heterostructures for efficient charge separation, the role of electronic junctions in charge transfer, computational tools to study photocatalytic reactions, reactor design and operation, non-conventional catalyst scaffolds, transient spectroscopy measurements, interfacial engineering and (photo)electrochemical characterisation. Presentations about industrial implementation of new materials will also be included.

Final programme (updated on 29/10/2015), including detailed schedule

The workshop is open to the scientific community, particularly PhD students and young researchers and it includes a poster session.

Thanks to the generous support of the European Comission (CARINHYPH project) and the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness (FOTOFUEL network) this event is FREE to the public.

UK-based members of the UK Solar Fuels Network can apply for travel bursaries to attend the workshop. More details here.

With the collaboration of the UK Solar Fuels Network and VALCO2 network (“Chemical valorisation of CO2”)

REGISTRATION BY e-mail IS MANDATORY. Please send your name, surname, affiliation and detail whether or not you will present a poster to Ms. Mariana Huerta (mariana.huerta@imdea.org (+34 915493422)). Feel free to contact her for more information about the meeting.
