Artificial Photosynthesis Summer School

« Bienvenue en France » Label

2022, UPPA was awarded the “Welcome to France” label

For institutions, the "Bienvenue en France" label is a fundamental part of quality management. It serves to measure, describe, and promote the facilities and initiatives that accommodate and benefit international students.

Artificial Photosynthesis Summer SchoolAnglet - Registration before 30/09/2021

Climate change resulting from accumulation of anthropogenic carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and the uncertainty in the amount of recoverable fossil fuel reserves are driving forces for the development of renewable, carbon-neutral energy technologies. Artificial photosynthesis is an appealing approach for a sustainable energy generation as it produces “solar fuels” or commodities for chemistry in a stable and storable chemical form, from solar energy, H2O & CO2.

Achieving a performing APS device is done by combining and understanding in a unique device a photo active system and a bio-inspired electrochemical stack where H2O oxidation and H+ or CO2 reduction. The Summer School will cover multidisciplinary aspects as catalysis for water splitting, hydrogen evolution and CO2 reduction, membranes for proton transfer, photo-induced processes and device development. Furthermore, Life cycle analysis and   Social Sciences Issues present in the implementation of Novel Energies will be also covered.

The goal of this summer school is to give an overview on different APS related fields, core of the H2020 ITN eSCALED  and E2S UPPA INTERMAT International chair and EnSuITe Hub projects . That enables the discussion among the different disciplines by inviting scientific experts recognized in APS linked areas to share the state of art with the young researchers who will build the sustainable novel energies in the near future. Moreover, the Young participants will be also invited to present their work (oral/poster) in the specific sessions to open the discussion with the experts.
