Our network

Europe’s leading institutions in thermoelectric research join forces. Learn more about the people and institutions that drive the HORATES network.

Consortium

The HORATES consortium is composed of 11 beneficiaries and 5 associate partners from 7 different European countries and 1 non-European country. This consortium brings together expertise from both academic and non-academic nodes to ensure to our 15 recruited ESRs a real multisectoral exposure.
