Smart and efficient cooling techniques for photovoltaic technologies 

organizer: Sandro Nižetić, University of Split, Croatia

International workshop is focused on the recent advancements in the field of the smart and efficient cooling techniques for photovoltaics as part of the ongoing research project funded by Croatian Science Foundation. Different important topics would be discussed and that are related to the smart cooling systems of the silicon-based photovoltaics with main emphasis on techno-economic, environmental and modelling aspects. Several internationally recognized researchers and project collaborators will present and discuss specific topics linked with ongoing research on the project (Smart and hybrid cooling techniques for siliceous photovoltaic panels-IP-01-2018-2814.).

PANTERA nano-workshop: “Boosting the R&I activity on Smart Grid (SG) Technologies”

September 10, 2021


Coordinator: FOSS Research Centre for Sustainable Energy, University of Cyprus


PAN European Technology Energy Research Approach (PANTERA) is a EU H2020 project aimed at setting up a European forum composed of Research & Innovation stakeholders active in the fields of smart grids, storage and local energy systems, including policy makers, standardisation bodies and experts in both research and academia, representing the EU energy system (
Within the PANTERA project, an interactive multi-functional platform is developed. This platform is called EIRIE platform which stands for European Interconnection for Research Innovation & Entrepreneurship. The EIRIE platform acts as the meeting point to all actors active in the field of energy research & innovation from all Europe. You can visit the EIRIE platform under the following link:

Croatia is an active member of EU since 1st July 2013 and actively works in the success of the energy transition objectives to achieve the declared policies for achieving the low carbon economy. However, the following areas are still a concern in achieving carbon neutrality and we would like to address them in this workshop that brings together stakeholders in the field of smart grids, storage and local energy systems:

  • R&I activities in the field are weak calling for more national and European support to raise opportunities, bring closer to the wealth of EU knowledge and offer the means to address local needs with the support of the industry and broader communities.
  • Enabling technologies like digitalization, storage, smart grids and reliable communications are not adequately addressed to facilitate the much-wanted transition for the effective use of emerging technologies that include distributed RES, e-mobility with smart charging and V2G attributes and demand flexibility.
  • End users and citizens are not adequately empowered through codes, appropriate regulation and market instruments to build and operate effective energy management systems utilizing the emerging technologies that can grow into efficient energy communities with appropriate technologies in place to facilitate optimal use of local resources for the benefit of the citizens.

Support to the coordination of national research and innovation programmes in areas of activity of the European Energy Research Alliance (SUPEERA) is an EU H2020 project aimed at strengthening European cooperation in Research and Innovation (R&I) to realise the objectives of the SET Plan in the broader perspective of the Clean Energy Transition, to support Europe’s strategic long-term vision of becoming a climate-neutral society by 2050. SUPEERA strives to attain its goals by supporting the energy research organisations involved in the SETPlan; encouraging a stronger engagement of the EU-13 countries; improving information exchange; and making recommendations for joint actions. Moreover, it attempts to accelerate the uptake of new technologies by industry and examine the impact of EU policies in the view of bringing the SET-Plan forward in the broader context of the Clean Energy Transition.

Hands-on training: AI in Focus 

Organizer: Dubravko Culibrk, Professor, Faculty of Technical Sciences, University of Novi Sad, Acting Director

Artificial Intelligence is a revolutionary technology, with the potential to become a General-Purpose Technology and change virtually all areas of human endeavor. We’ll kick off this hands-on training session, aimed at those venturing into the field of AI for the first time, with a brief overview of the circumstances that enabled the rapid development of AI, major applications of this technology and specific requirements in terms of computing power needed to develop and deploy state-of-the-art AI technology. Attendees will then have a chance to try to deploy and train deep neural networks themselves, using the Huawei’s AI Ascend stack and major AI-development frameworks. For those wishing to continue their journey in the realm of AI, we’ll provide a curated list of free resources at their disposal.

Meeting six Editors in Chief – How to Increase your Publication Result and Success

Speakers: Jiří Jaromír Klemeš, Sustainable Process Integration Laboratory – SPIL, NETME Centre, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Brno University of Technology- VUT Brno
Sandro Nižetić, University of Split, Croatia
Petar Sabev Varbanov, Sustainable Process Integration Laboratory – SPIL, NETME Centre, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Brno University of Technology- VUT Brno 

The topics to be discussed cover at least briefly: writing a potential successful scientific manuscript, selection of a right journal and their metrics, various types of paper submission, Selecting and using the right references, similarity and plagiarism, correct novelty reasoning and presentation of the proposed methods and the results, proper conclusions writing, how to handle the reviewing process, final proofing, presentation and promotion of the published paper. Examples of successful publications will be given, with analysis of the features leading to their high impacts. The Workshop is going to be followed by dedicated consultations of specific and individual features.
