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.

Our mission

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.


Young talents

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
