NESTER

Networking for Excellence in Solar Thermal Energy Research

The Cyprus Institute is organising the 3rd NESTER School on Concentrated Solar Technologies (CST) in collaboration with four of the most prestigious Research Centres in Europe in this field: CIEMAT (Spain), CNRS-PROMES (France), ENEA (Italy) and RWTH-Aachen (Germany).
The School is directed to Early Stage Researchers and Early Career Professionals. Thus, some background related to the CSP/CST sector would be recommended.

The School offers a fast-paced comprehensive overview of the CST field in the first week, followed by more advanced lectures on selected topics of specific interest to the field, delivered by world experts.

Site visits and hands-on activities will take place in the state-of-the-art research infrastructures of the Cyprus Institute.

In 2018, the specialised topics will focus on Point Focusing systems.

The school will be followed by an international conference entitled
The Decarbonisation of The Energy Sector in the Mediterranean Region  and the Middle East  – The Role of CSP
between 29th November - 1st December,  that all NESTER School participants will attend for free.
