The main subject of the ESSEE4 is focused on Contemporary trends in electrochemical engineering and technology with the aim of supplying a thorough survey from the main principles that represent the core of electrochemical engineering itself, via electrode materials and electrochemical systems, up to the integrated electrochemical processes and technologies. The course will be organized through appropriately chosen lectures, covering the theoretical and practical aspects. Distinguish professors and well-known experts from the fields will be invited to give the lectures covering the topics included in the School program.

Invited Lecturers:
Professor S. Trasatti, University of Milan, Italy
Professor Ch. Comninellis, Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne, Lausanne Switzerland
Professor C. Vayenas, University of Patras Greece
Professor B. Sunden, University of Lund, Sweden
Professor A. A. Wragg; University of Exeter, UK
Professor A. De Battisti, University of Ferrara, Italy
Professor H. Wendt, University of Darmstadt, Germany
Prof. A. A. Karayakin, Moskow State Univ., Russia
Dr F. Lapicque, Institut National Polytechnique de Lorraine, France
Dr M. A. R. Rodrigo, Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha, Spain
Dr K. Bouzek, Institute of Chemical Technology Czech Republic

Lectures will be prepared in the form of notes and published by the Organizer. The notes will be available to participants in both hard copy and electronic form, upon registration.

The Programme is created in such a way that it provides possibilities for an active scientific and personal interaction between lecturers and participants.
