International summer school on materials for  energy storage and conversion(mESC-IS School 2021)  is an integral part of  the symposium held with the same name ( International Symposium on Materials for Energy Storage and Conversion, mESC-IS 2021). 

 The summer school, took place in virtual mode 10-13 September  2021 preceding   the symposium. 

The school  follows the structure of the earlier schools (mESC-School 2015 , mESC-School 2017, and mESC-School 2019 ) and aims to bring  new comers/early researchers with those experienced in the field. The school covers the state-of-the-art reviews in selected topics plus in depth coverage of materials and electrochemical characterization techniques.

Topics covered in the school are listed below.
