The course will take place at University of Bern, in the Mont-Soleil region and at the BFH Energy Storage Research Centre. The optional post conference program will take participants to Grindelwald and the Jungfraujoch for a visit to the High Altitude Research Lab. We invite 24 excellent PhD and advanced master students from all over Europe to participate.

The summer PhD school will be held on Mont-Soleil above the city of Saint-Imier in the Western part of Switzerland. Production, distribution and application of renewable energies can be shown in a directly perceptible way since all adequate facilities are concentrated on and around Mont-Soleil in a unique manner. Lectures and workshops will take place in the visitor center, with top experts from internationally renowned universities as well as from industries in the field of renewable energies. Hotel accommodation will be organized in a unique mountain hotel on Mont-Soleil.
