Welcome to the website of the European Thermoelectric Society e.V. (ETS). If you are interested in Thermoelectricity, have questions about the technology or want to get in contact with European Thermoelectricians you’ve come to the right place!! I would strongly recommend that you join the society, attend the famous annual conference ECT, expand your knowledge, and make new friends. Come and join the European key people in this field to guide your own activities and to shape together the future of European Thermoelectrics.
The ETS was established legally in Swiss in 2012 as an independent, non-profit association. The idea to establish a European network on thermoelectrics started to take shape already in 1987 at the First European Conference on Thermoelectrics in Cardiff, UK, organized by M.D. Rowe. The ETS was founded in 1995 as a regional organization of the International Thermoelectric Society and H. Scherrer became the first president. As the interest has grown, so the ETS has become increasingly important in guiding and supporting Thermoelectricity in Europe. We are committed to watch trends, give directions for future activities, develop visions, and render guidance to those interested in this field.
Nowadays ETS represents both a European contact point for research, economy, politics and the interested public and hub of excellence for scientific and industrial interaction. This combination has given rise to vital exchange of expertise, deep technological know-how, important research collaborations and long-term friendships.
TheEuropean Thermoelectric Society e.V. (ETS) is a non-profit organisation. The purpose is the promotion of Thermoelectricity in science, research, education, public and politics the promotion of young researchers and engineers in the field of Thermoelectrics.
ETS is open to individual persons with activities or interests in thermoelectricity from industry or academic institutions. Admission of new members requires the agreement of the Executive Committee and begins after payment of the membership fee. Registration for the European Conference on Thermoelectrics (ECT) involves an obligatory one year membership. The membership fee will be covered by the conference registration fee.
