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

The second Progress Meeting and Mid Term Check was hosted by Instituto de Ciencia de Materiales de Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC) and held at the UAB Casa de Convalescència from April 25-29, 2022. The event was organized in a hybrid format to allow all PIs to attend despite teaching obligations. All ESRs attended in person. The second… Read More »Second progress meeting and mid term check in Barcelona, Spain
In the construct of HORATES, Chalmers University of Technology is the main body to investigate p-doping of polymeric organic semiconductors (Figure 1). One class of materials studied in HORATES are polymers, or plastics. When these polymers have a specific structure of alternating double and single bonds, the charges will be able to move along the… Read More »Synthesis and p-doping of glycol containing conjugated polymers
The second progress meeting of HORATES will take place from April 25 to April 29, 2022 at the Casa de la Convalescencia, in central Barcelona and will include the mid term check, a school on thermal properties of materials and a hands on workshop on presentation skills. Below you will find an insight into our… Read More »Second progress meeting and mid term check in Barcelona, Spain coming soon
