Our Belgian member VITO is part of the ECOMATES training programme which consists of cutting-edge research projects executed by ten Doctoral Candidates (DCs) recruited across the different institutions of the training network. The DCs will develop innovative scientific and technical skills, but also follow complementary and interdisciplinary skills courses, both at a local and network-wide level.

VITO’s DC will prepare a doctoral thesis in the field of electrochemical CO2 conversion, will publish scientific articles related to the research project of the assignment, and will contribute to outreach and research at VITO and Trinity College Dublin (TCD) under the framework of ECOMATES project.

This Doctoral Candidate will be hosted at the Flemish Institute for Technological Research – VITO (Belgium) and will be enrolled in the PhD school of TDC (Ireland), supervised by Dr. Deepak Pant and co-Supervised by Prof. Max García Melchor. Part of the activity will be carried on during secondment periods at APRIA for a training on electrolyzer development and testing the GDEs developed at VITO and at Trinity College Dublin for a training on electrode design and modelling.
