ECOMATES First Training Days

November 23, 2023 - November 24, 2023

ECOMATES First Training Days – 23rd and 24th November, Turin.

The first training days within the ECOMATES doctoral network will be held in Turin on November 23rd and 24th, 2023. The event, coordinated by Politecnico di Torino and hosted in the splendid spaces of Environment Park, will be preparatory to defining and sharing the network’s training objectives with all PhD students.

On this occasion, researchers will have the opportunity to get to know each other and start experimenting as a group; they will also present their individual research projects with the participation of their supervisors.

The work will take place within the framework of a two-day programme full of presentations and training sessions, with a focus on FUNDAMENTAL ELECTROCHEMISTRY during the first day and on the STATE OF THE ART OF CO2RR during the second day.

During these two days, the Governing Bodies of the ECOMATES project (Steering Board, Supervisory Board and Exploitation and Dissemination Group) will gather to discuss strategic decision for the network.

Below is the full programme for the two days:
