ECT2017 will host the short school “ECT-Tutorial” addressed to young researchers and novices for advancing their technical expertise and knowledge.

The tutorial, free-of-charge for conference attendants, is limited to 30 participants. Lessons are scheduled on Monday 25th and Tuesday 26th.

The school will consist in four master classes given by leading thermoelectric investigators. Lessons will cover thermoelectric fundamentals, theory, materials, characterization techniques and thermoelectricity at the nano-scale.


Prof. Dario Narducci: “Fundamentals of thermoelectricity”

Dr. Jan Koenig: “Thermoelectricity applications”

Prof. Anke Weidenkaff: “Thermoelectric materials and their characterization”

Prof. Giovanni Pennelli: “Fabrication and characterization of nanostructures for thermoelectric applications”
