5th UNI-SET Energy Clustering Event

31 May - 2 June 2017
European University Association (EUA) , KU Leuven, Belgium

The event is the fifth of a series of UNI-SET “Energy Clustering Events" which take place in 2016 and 2017 to discuss and stimulate the development of innovative research and education programmes in the energy field. The events seek to mobilise the European university community to tackle the “energy challenge” by fostering exchange and collaboration between researchers, educators and other stakeholders, framed by the European Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET-Plan) and the Energy Union.

The event in Leuven will provide opportunities for clustering, consortia building and knowledge sharing for innovative, university-based research projects and institutional initiatives in the field of clean and renewable energy. The main theme of the event, around which sessions will be programmed, is derived from the SET-Plan core priority “N°1 in Renewable Energy”. The conference will in particular address various aspects of renewables integration to the energy system.
