Novel Material Technologies for Alternative Powertrains

The Aerosol and Particle Technology Laboratory (APTL) / Centre for Research and Technology – Hellas (CERTH) are organising the 2nd APT-STEP WORKSHOP on Novel Material Technologies for Alternative Powertrains, to be held in Thessaloniki, Greece, on 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 frame of the APT-STEP project. Project’s collaborators – 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 both research and industrial groups. The workshop will promote the creation of future research exchanges and collaborations for innovation and the exploitation of research results.
