Our Winter school on Electrocatalysis has as purpose to introduce you into the world of green electrochemistry with currently as hottest topic the recycling of CO2 through the electrochemical reduction into valuable chemicals. This topic also fits in the European Interreg E2C program guaranteeing the international nature of the winter school.
