Global warming, finite fossil-fuel supplies, and urban pollution rapidly change the landscape of energy research worldwide and our training and education programs must change accordingly. Because of the natural intermittency of many renewable energy sources, there will be a far greater need for advanced electrical energy storage technology. Establishing highly diversified education programs that embrace worldwide scientists in this strategic area of science is of primary importance for bringing newly emerging concepts to fruition and securing our future. Five European universities pooled their efforts to create a specific, integrated, European Master?s-level degree program, Materials for Energy Storage and Conversion, which offers high-level education while providing high mobility to students, as well as beneficial knowledge and exposure to relevant industrial settings.
