Frontiers in Energy Harvesting

Materials and Devices

Perugia (Italy) – June 24-25, 2024

The Noise in Physical System Laboratory is glad to announce the NiPS Summer School 2024 devoted to “Frontiers in Energy Harvesting: Materials and Devices“.

The school, supported by the European Union – NextGenerationEU under the Italian Ministry of University and Research (MUR) National Innovation Ecosystem VITALITY, is open to graduate students, post-docs, young researchers, and in general to all scientists interested in the frontiers in energy harvesting technologies.
The school is aimed at teaching the bases of the science of energy harvesting with focus in recent advancements covering the following topics:

1) Basic principles of Energy Harvesting
2) Advanced energy conversion technologies (mechanical, RF, PV, betavoltaic and biological)
3) Innovative materials and solutions for Energy Harvesting
4) Future prospective on Energy Harvesting

Participants to the school will have the opportunity to widely discuss with teachers and colleagues, also through a evening poster-session, where the research conducted by the participants will be illustrated.

The event will be held jointly with the EnerHarv 2024 international workshop on energy harvesting and related technologies, taking place from June 26 to 28 ( in Perugia at Hotel Giò. This is a fantastic opportunity for early-stage researchers and professionals to connect with the future of energy solutions.

The school issues a certificate of participation with explicit mention of the hours of lectures, for credit assignment.
