This issue of the Journal of Electrochemical Science and Engineering is dedicated to the 6. European Summer School on Electrochemical Engineering (ESSEE6) held in Zadar, Croatia, September 16-21, 2012. As a triennial event the European Summer School of Electrochemical Engineering aims to raise awareness of the importance of electrochemical engineering in the various aspects of technological applications as well as to help students and engineers to successfully meet the challenges they encounter in their careers.
Thanks to the participation of world-recognized professor and teachers, a warm and stimulating atmosphere was created in Zadar, enabling students and other participants to acquire basic and advanced knowledge and skills of electrochemical engineering theory and practice. Close to 70 students, mostly from European countries but also from other parts of the world, participated in ESSEE6.
Most of the participants exhibited their current work in the form of poster presentation which attracted a great interest among professors and other students. The posters showed a content of high scientific level and revealed how much efforts students had to made in pursuing their work and career. The topics of their work covered almost all fields in the contemporary electrochemical engineering including electrochemical energy storage and conversion, electrochemical engineering in the environmental protection, corrosion engineering, industrial electrochemistry and electrochemical reactor design.
In this issue of the Journal of Electrochemical Science and Engineering a small selection of four papers representing students’ work is published. One review and three original scientific papers give a general overview of the scientific content of the Summer school and prove high scientific and engineering achievements of the authors. I wish authors and all other participants of ESSEE6 a successful and brilliant career and a significant contribution to the field of electrochemical engineering.
