Hybrid and organic thermoelectric systems
HORATES is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (ITN). Our young researchers develop new materials to convert waste heat into electricity.
In HORATES, we train the next generation of R&D innovators in hybrid and organic thermoelectrics and develop prototype energy harvesters, inspired by actual market demand.
Our mission is to train early-stage researchers in the interdisciplinary field of organic thermoelectrics
HORATES is funded by the Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions of the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme
HORATES is a European network of research institutions from Germany, Italy, Sweden, Spain, France and the Netherlands

Thermoelectrics (TE) are an interesting class of materials which can directly convert heat into electricity or vice versa. Compared with inorganic TE materials, organic polymers have attracted great attention owing to their low thermal conductivity and high TE responses. Whereas the majority of recent reports have explored doping-induced electrical conductivity as the principal parameter for… Read More »Advanced characterization of the thermoelectric properties of doped polymers
