Sustainable Solutions to Unlock the Potential of Thermoelectrics and Secondary Materials“, our third webinar on 31st May 2023

The third free dissemination webinar prepared by the START project will be a special event. As we will have our project meeting in Madrid, within the premises of our partner IGME-CSIC, on 31st May, at 14:30 CEST, we are taking the occasion to open to all interested people and give some more presentations on the topics that are important for us.

The webinar is titled "Sustainable Solutions to Unlock the Potential of Thermoelectrics and Secondary Materials". It will run in a hybrid format, with our group in Madrid and the participants connected from remote, and will host many presentations, including two from members of our external Scientific Advisory Board, Doug Crane of DTP Thermoelectrics and Julie Hollis of EuroGeoSurveys. Here is the full agenda:
