The first course of the Joint EPS-SIF International School on Energy – entitled “New strategies for energy generation, conversion and storage” – will be held at the Villa Monastero, in Varenna, between 30 July and 4 August this year.
The school aims to present all the fields of physics which are relevant to technologies for energy production, conversion, transmission and efficiency. Topics which will be covered during the course include: biomass; climate issues; energy saving technology; fission; fossil fuels; fusion; hydro; solar, photovoltaic and photothermal sources; and wind.
Full and partial scholarships are available to students who are European Physical Society [EPS] or Italian Physical Society [SIF] members. Such grants will only be available to those members whose fee payments are up-to-date.
The course is being sponsored by the Camera di Commercio Lecco, Centro Fermi, the European Laboratory for Non-Linear Spectroscopy, the European Physical Society, GARR, the Instituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare, the Italian Physical Society, and Nanophotonics for Energy Efficiency.
