In connection with SPEA10 and in the same venue, a school on solar fuels, organized by the FOTOFUEL network (, will take place on june 4th. This school will be aimed at PhD students and postdoctoral researchers attending the SPEA10 conference and will include lectures on fundamental aspects of solar fuels obtainment by photocatalytic and photoelectrochemical processes.Registration to this school will be free of charge. To confirm participation and for any further information, please send an e-mail to
The preliminary schedule includes 7/8 lectures given by FOTOFUEL and external researchers on June 4th from ca. 9 h to ca. 17 h.
