ECCO-MATE Summer School 4 at Haniotika News!

During the summer school duration a press release in the local media was made. This was subsequently refed in one of the biggest energy-related website of Greece. In the framework of the press release it was pointed out that the International Combustion Institute Summer School on Advanced combustion engine technologies brinks closer the virtually similar, but at the same time significantly different, automotive and maritime internal combustion engines. Early stage researchers, doctorate candidates and industry specialists participated at the event from most of the leading Universities and companies in Europe. Apart from analyzing cutting edge advances in the field, the participants got involved in fruitful discussions on how to transfer the know-how beateen the autotmotive and maritime industries and increase its impact on society. It was pointed out that "[..] the combustion engines dominates certain fields (e.g. transportation) and it's share is expected to remaim the same in the foreseeable future, hence optimization of their performance and enhanced efficiency with alternative, novel fuel blends is of paramount importance [...]". It was noted that the event was co-organised from the International Combustion Institute and its Greek Section, as well as from the EU funded, Marie Sklodowska-Curie action through the ECCO-MATE project.
