Frontiers in Energy Research

Main content

Frontiers in Energy Research is a series of lectures given by PhD students for PhD students of their energy-related research work.

It aims to disseminate knowledge of ETH Zurich energy-related research activities throughout the research community whilst providing doctoral students with an opportunity to present and discuss their energy-related research activity to the broader ETH research community.

To attend a Frontiers seminar. The lectures are held weekly during the Spring semester on Tuesday afternoons from 4:15pm (excepting Easter), a total of 14 weeks. They are open to the public, free and do not require registration. Attendees are requested to provide constructive written comments on each lecture which are passed (annonymised) to the presenter as useful feedback. Details of planned presentations are below.
