The primary goal of the School will be to present all physics fields with relevance for the technologies of energy production, conversion, transmission and savings. Their potential will be presented but also the need for more research and development to fully unfold it will be indicated. For this purpose, basic lectures and topical seminars will be presented by specialists in their field.

The online version of the Lecture Notes of the previous Joint EPS-SIF International School on Energy are available in EPJ Web of Conferences platform.

The School is intended for PhD students and young post-docs. Scholarships may be granted to deserving students who need financial help. Such requests must be specified in the application and justified in the recommendation letter. Some of the Scholarships will be granted to EPS and/or SIF Members. Whoever may be interested in attending the Course and is not entitled to be considered a student, may follow the Course as observer but will pay the School fees.

Deadline for application is 30 April 2014.
More information is available on the EPS-SIF International School website.
