Events and Activities

The E3TECH Excellence Network has proposed the organisation of the 3rd Workshop on Sustainable Electrochemical Technology organized by the E3TECH Network.

Following the two previous successful events organized in Gargagno ( and Barcelona (, the Spanish E3TECH Network of Excellence is going to organize its third Workshop on Sustainable Electrochemical Technology within the framework of the 25th ISE Topical Meeting, which will be held in Toledo (Spain) from May 12 to 15, 2019.

On this occasion, the workshop will be focused on the ability of the electrochemical technology to improve the sustainability in the modern society, giving chance to researchers in very different topics of electrochemistry and electrochemical engineering fields to contribute. The workshop will consist of two sessions: (i) a scientific one, in which the most recent results from the research carried out by the different groups will be presented; this will promote the preparation of a special issue in Chemosphere, aimed at publishing high quality manuscripts from presented works; (ii) a second session, in which a round table with companies will help to stress the points in which the collaboration in the topic of sustainability between academy and industry can be improved.  Invited lectures from outstading researchers contributing to the Topical Meeting will also be included.

The sessions will be in parallel to those of the ISE Topical Meeting and no additional registration fee will be charged (it will be mandatory to be registered in the ISE Topical Meeting). After the Workshop, the general assembly of the E3TECH network will be held.

Contributions to this Workshop will not be included in the ISE Topical Meeting or in the book of abstracts since this is a satellite event, but a certificate from the E3TECH organizers will be available if needed. Contributions have to be submitted to the following email (deadline: 15 January 2019)
