The Summer school on Materials for Energy Storage and Conversion was a 3 days training school 23-25 September 2017 which preceded the symposium. Pre-applications were collected for the school in four rounds; the first starting mid-may and the final round ending on September 18th. A total of 58 applicants were accepted to the program.The venue was Dorukkaya Hotel in Ortahisar, Capapdocia, i.e. the same as that of symposium.

The school  concentrated on advanced characterization techniques common to all three activity areas, Batteries, Fuel Cells and Solid State Hydrogen Storage(SSHS) as well as on overviews on selected topics in Batteries, Fuel cells and SSHS.

A view from closing session of mESC School 17. A number of proposals were made in the session so as to further improve the school. One important outcome of this session was the introduction of hands-on sessions, which was adopted in mESC-School 19 onwards.
