Face-to-face Summer School Comes Back to Japan!

The Summer School is organized by Yokohama National University (YNU), Japan, in co-operation with Graz University of Technology (TU Graz), Austria, and with internationally recognised experts. This course covers research topics in the fields of hydrogen production, basic electrochemistry, thermodynamics, and kinetics as well as the design and development of the complete fuel cell systems. The goals of the course are to provide the necessary background to the students and to make them more aware of the need to work closely with colleagues from different fields such as the natural sciences and engineering departments in order to develop and implement this technology.
