11-15 September (basic) & 18-22 September (advanced)
“Introduction to Fuel Cells, Electrolysers and Battery Technologies”
Coast of Athens – AMARILΙΑ HOTEL
Official Organizer for the 8th year: Panhellas Tourism & Congress


The Joint European Summer School JESS 2017 will be held near the beautiful city of Athens, on the coast of the Attica. Once again, it will provide highly condensed high level courses on selected topics.

The Summer School focuses on: Introduction to Fuel Cell, Electrolyser and Battery Technologies

The increase in energy production from renewable sources creates a demand for energy storage technologies. Storage and conversion can be accomplished electrochemically: in batteries or through electrolysis and fuel cells. Therefore, these technologies are poised to play a major role in the energy supply infrastructure of the near future.

The Joint European Summer School JESS 2017 addresses these issues by offering high quality graduate level courses on selected topics of fuel cells, electrolyser and battery technologies. This series of summer schools has been ongoing since 2004 and targets an audience of university students (MSc and PhD levels), as well as post-doctoral researchers. We also welcome more experienced researchers and engineers wishing to review these technologies and expand their general knowledge, for instance, to suit a newly acquired position or collect credits for a Continuous Professional Development (CPD) scheme. The topical content is tailored to the needs of a diverse audience: newcomers to the field, experienced students and young professionals working at the forefront of fuel cell, electrolyser and battery applications.
