EASE Student Award 2023
The European Association for Storage of Energy (EASE) is proud to launch its seventh annual Student Award recognising outstanding graduate student research in the field of energy storage.
The winning student will be awarded a ticket to the Energy Storage Global Conference taking place in Brussels on 10-12 October 2023. The 3-day ticket has the value of 1,299 Euros! He or she will be recognised during the conference and will be invited to present their research to the participants. In addition, EASE will cover transportation to and from Brussels as well as accommodation for the winning student for 3 nights in Brussels. This is a invaluable opportunity to network with industry leaders in the energy storage sector and to learn more about energy storage technologies, applications, business cases, and policy developments, which in turn, can give you access to working opportunities.
Applicants must either currently be enrolled as a student or have completed a program at an accredited European university between July 2022 and July 2023. The research must focus on an energy storage-related topic. Eligible papers are Bachelor' s, Master's or Doctorates research papers submitted during the above-mentioned period or ongoing. EASE will be able to evaluate papers written in English. For those written in other languages, applicants are asked to contact the EASE Secretariat prior to submitting their application to verify whether the Secretariat has the requisite language skills. Applicants must be available to travel to Brussels to attend the Energy Storage Global Conference on 10-12 October 2023. Applicants from outside the EU should be in possession of a valid visa allowing them to travel to Belgium in October 2023. EASE will only cover basic travel and accommodation costs for the event from locations within Europe. By submitting their application, candidates agree to allow their personal data, including the completed thesis, to be shared with EASE members.
The selection of the winning student will be performed by the EASE Secretariat and a selected committee of members. Students will be judged on the quality of the responses, the research design, and on the relevance of the research topic to the energy storage industry. The winner will be announced by the beginning of September 2023.
The deadline for the application is Sunday, 16 July 2023. Candidates who do not comply with the eligibility criteria will be disqualified.
