European Spring School on Ceramics
for Energy Conversion and Storage


The Spring School aims at presenting a current overview of ceramic materials and technologies for selected energy applications. A topical focus is put on high-temperature power generation (gas turbines, concentrated solar power) and electrochemical applications based on ionic transport (solid oxide fuel cells, gas separation membranes, electrochemical storage).
After a brief introduction of each application field including targets for properties, the relevant ceramic materials will be reviewed and evaluated. In order to be integrated in real devices, they need to fulfil numerous, often contradictory conditions, such as highest ionic and/ or electronic conductivity, stability during operation, processability, etc.

The Spring School will include a visit of Forschungszentrum Jülich (FZ Jülich), one of the largest multidisciplinary research centres in Europe, as well as the Institute of Energy and Climate Research: Materials Synthesis and Processing (IEK-1).

Additional information:

  • Registration fee (including catering and accommodation):            

300,- € for students with DKG / ECerS membership
350,- € for professionals and students without membership

  • The Spring School will take place right after the annual meeting of the Deutsche Keramische Gesellschaft (German Ceramic Society / DKG)  also organized at FZ Jülich, from March 15th to 18th: [link to Ceramic / Keramik 2020]
  • English will be used widely through the conference, especially because guests from France, Belgium and the Netherlands are expected. Some participants may therefore like to attend both events (without being mandatory).
