PhD summer school in 3D Printing of Functional Materials for Energy Systems including Cell3Ditor workshop

Three-dimensional printing (3D printing), is a free-forming fabrication technique with remarkable reduction of energy consumption and waste material, which has already a great potential in industries based on valuable raw materials and for complex shapes. Nowadays, 3D printing technologies are ready to bring new paradigm in energy storage conversion technologies, offering unique capabilities and enhancement of performances. In this summer school we aim to join 3D production and energy technologies through theoretical lectures and experimental sessions. The student learns state of the art 3D printers for functional materials, i.e. metal, polymer and electroceramics to fabricate energy system, especially focusing on the use of hybrid printing solutions to fabricate multi-materials devices.


In this event, one day will be devoted to Cell3Ditor workshop, which is an excellent example of the application of 3D printing technologies for the fabrication of energy devices. Within Cell3Ditor project a novel multi-material hybrid 3D printing machine for the industrial fabrication of SOFC stacks has been developed. This approach means a disruptive innovation of the SOFC stack manufacturing paradigm.
This workshop aims at connecting students, professionals and experts of diverse fields interested in the application of 3D printing technologies to the energy sector.


The summer school will take place 26-30 August 2019 at the Technical University of Denmark at both DTU Lyngby and DTU Risø Campus. For more information on venues click here


The Summer School will typically be awarded 2,5 ECTS in total by your university. You will get a diploma describing the course content.

For DTU students: Please do also sign up to this course here on Study Planner.

Participants from outside DTU do also need to fill in this form in order to get the 2,5 ECTS.



Registration deadline: 8 July 2019


The registration site will however close when we have reached the max. number of attendees. We will assess registrations on an ongoing basis, so please register as soon as possible. You will receive an assessment 7-10 days after you have registered. If your registration is not accepted, the registration fee minus the credit card fee will be refunded to you.

Please use Internet Explorer for your registration since it might be difficult registering via Chrome.
