Energy Clustering Events
A series of ‘Energy Clustering Events’ (ECEs) will take place in 2016 and 2017. The events aim to bring together institutional and research leaders from universities to discuss the strategic role of universities in meeting the objectives of a sustainable, low-carbon European society. In addition, they seek to stimulate the development of new, state-of-the-art Master and Doctorate programmes, as well as research projects. The UNI-SET ECEs overarching themes are based on the categorisation of the Core and Additional Priorities (and related 10 Key Actions) of the SET-Plan.
Upcoming Energy Clustering Events
- 23-24 October 2017 (Brussels, Belgium): 6th UNI-SET Energy Clustering Event "European Universities in the Energy Transition: Towards a Clean Energy Future".
Previous Energy Clustering Events
"Science & Skills for Renewables Integration" is the theme of the 5th Energy Clustering Event organised at KU Leuven from 31 May to 2 June 2017.
On 27-28 March 2017, Imperial College London was host to the 4th UNI-SET Energy Clustering Event on the topic "energy options for sustainable transport and carbon capture, storage and use"
University Politehnica of Bucharest in Romania hosted the third UNI-SET Energy Clustering Event (ECE) on 21-23 November 2016 on the topic of university-based research and education for smart energy systems and the role of energy consumers. The 3rd ECE theme derives from Core Priority 2 'The future smart EU energy system, with the consumer at the centre' of the SET-Plan.
Politecnico di Torino in Italy hosted the second UNI-SET Energy Clustering Event (ECE) on 26-28 September 2016 on the topic of university-based research and education for energy efficient systems and nuclear safety. The 2nd ECE theme corresponded to Core priority 3 'Develop and strengthen energy-efficient systems' and Additional priority 2 'Increase safety in the use of nuclear energy’ of the SET-Plan.
The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim, Norway hosted the first UNI-SET Energy Clustering Event on 24-26 February 2016 on the topic "Human resources and new knowledge to build the future energy system"
