NiPS – EnABLES Summer School 2021

The Noise in Physical Systems Laboratory is very glad to announce the NiPS – EnABLES Summer SchoolPowering the Internet of Things 2021” devoted to the topics of Energy Harvesting, Storage, Micro-Power Management and Systems Integration.

This is the fourth – and final – event of formation and dissemination supported together by University of Perugia (Italy) and the EnABLES EU-funded project (grant no. 730957). The Summer School is foreseen to take place in Perugia from the 15th to the 18th of September 2021, in parallel with the International Conference SR40, concerning the 40th anniversary of the first paper about Stochastic Resonance.

The NiPS – EnABLES School, bringing together international scientists from academia, research centers and industry in the subject area of Energy Harvesting, offers the opportunity to young researchers to be aware of the state of art and moreover to generate newly founded enthusiasm for groundbreaking technologies in the field of energy harvesting and energy transformation at micro and nanoscales, and its use for powering sensing and communicating devices

Energy management in self-powered smart sensors and devices is required by IoT innovation, and this Summer School is a great opportunity to bring new blood to the power IoT community, a strategic way to prepare a new generation of “powering the IoT” researchers, encouraging collaborations and the comparison between different and complementary competences, not only for graduates and PhD students, but also for researchers from industry and academia.

The school is open to graduate students, post-docs, young researchers, and in general to all scientists and professionals interested in the physical foundations and practical applications of energy transformations at micro and nanoscales.

This year the event will be organized in a mixed  modality, in order to guarantee that the School will be carried out even if the limitations – due to the Covid-19 pandemic – will persist: a virtual attendance or an in-presence participation.
