Dear Colleagues and Friends,

It is with great pleasure of the Aerosol and Particle Technology Laboratory (APTL) / Centre for Research and Technology - Hellas (CERTH) to invite you to attend the 2nd APT-STEP WORKSHOP on “Novel Material Technologies for Alternative Powertrains”, to be held in Thessaloniki, Greece, in 25-26 February 2016 at CERTH.

During this two-day international workshop, experts from research and industrial organisations in Greece, Europe and the USA are invited to participate with presentations. Researchers, professional engineers and advanced/graduate students are invited to attend and discuss new discoveries and problems, exchange their views and develop plans for the future.

The workshop is organised in the framework of the REG-POT APT-STEP project. Project collaborators - Honda R&D Europe GmbH, AVL List, Centro Ricerche Fiat (CRF) and Centre d’Etude et de Recherche Technologique en Aerothermique et Moteurs (CERTAM) - will participate in the workshop facilitating the interaction of research and industrial groups. The workshop will promote the creation of future research exchanges and collaborations for innovative projects in the Workshop topics as well as opportunities for the exploitation of research results.


This workshop will include invited lectures on:

  • Enabling Technologies (nanosynthesis and computational materials) | Invited speech by Prof. Jorma JOKINIEMI (Univ. of Eastern Finland)
  • Challenges in Battery Technologies | Invited speech by Dr. Silvia BODOARDO (Politecnico di Torino)
  • Challenges in Membrane Electrode Assembly Technologies Invited speech by Prof. Jens Oluf JENSEN (Technical University of Denmark)
  • From Materials to Systems | Invited speech by Dr. Vittorio RAVELLO (Centro Ricerche FIAT)

Each session will address several thematic questions posed by participating researchers and coordinated by the invited speakers who will be experts in the specific research field.


During the Workshop, Prof. Constantinos VAYENAS (Univ. of Patras) will give a tutorial lecture on Electrochemistry.


Please find the Workshop's program here. 


A parallel session will include poster presentations.

(ATTENTION: Recommended poster size A0 (width 841mm x height 1189mm)).


Participation to the 2nd APT-STEP Workshop is free of charge.
