[ACADEMIC EVENT] Tenth Science Event for the Manutech-SLEIGHT Graduate School

From July 3, 2023 to July 6, 2023

The Manutech SLEIGHT Graduate School will hold its 10th SLEIGHT Science Event from July 3 to July 6 2023 in Saint-Étienne, bringing together researchers and students from the Saint-Étienne Lyon site. The topic for this event will be Sustainable Surface Engineering.

Energy efficiency has been at the heart of the public debate for decades and researchers are still working on innovative solutions. Surface engineering takes a key role in determining the success of sustainable technologies: photovoltaic and thermal solar panels will play a significant part in energy transition as well as hydrogen, a promising energy carrier from a sustainable source of energy.

For this 10th edition of the SLEIGHT Science Event, the Graduate School is proud to announce the participation of experts in transfer properties, solar technologies and hydrogen:

  • Audrey Soum-Glaudes (Laboratoire PROcédés Matériaux et Energie Solaire - PROMES, CNRS)
  • Philippe Voarino (Institut National de l'Énergie Solaire – INES – CEA, Université Savoie Mont-Blanc)
  • Alain Fave (Lyon Institute of Nanotechnologies – INL – INSA Lyon, CNRS)
  • Döme Tanguy (Institut Lumière Matière - ILM – UCBL, CNRS)
  • Jean-Jacques Greffet (Laboratoire Charles Fabry – Institut d’Optique Graduate School, CNRS, Université Paris-Saclay)
  • Pierre-François Cardey (Centre technique des industries mécaniques - CETIM Nantes)

The event topic addressing more specifically Hydrogen will be at the heart of the common day with the TRAMME Summer School, which will take place on Tuesday 4th July and focus on the link between hydrogen and tribology.
