On 31st May 2023, we held our third START webinar, that we titled “Sustainable Solutions to Unlock the Potential of Thermoelectrics and Secondary Materials“.

With the occasion of our Annual Meeting in Madrid, we gathered there most of the speakers, and held the webinar in hybrid format, with the about 30 delegates at the meeting physically in the room, and about the same number connected remotely. Thanks to all who took part!

This time, we have split the video of the long session into 3 videos. The first to be made available is the presentation by Doug Crane (DTP Thermoelectrics), member of our Scientific Advisory Board and first speaker of the day, and is about “Thermoelectric energy harvesting: principles, challenges and opportunities“, who travelled all the way from the Pacific coast of USA to join our meeting and webinar in person. The presentation is a walk through many aspects of the main focus of our project! Enjoy the video in our Multimedia page, or directly on YouTube!

Share the link to all the colleagues who could be interested in watching this webinar, and keep in touch for the next videos from this webinar (coming soon!), and next webinars! Have you already subscribed to our mailing list? You can do it right now in our “Contact” page!
