Call for university experts in the field of energy

16 Jun 2017

The UNI-SET consortium and the European Platform of Universities in Energy Research and Education (EUA-EPUE) have launched a call for university experts in the field of energy.

The initiative follows the publication of the “Roadmap for European Universities in Energy” and the “European Atlas of Universities in Energy Research & Education”. It intends to draft strategic thematic documents providing guidelines for the update of education and research programmes. The initiative is titled “Energy Pan-European Action Agendas for Universities: Identifying New Paradigms in Energy Higher Education and Research”.

Expressions of interest from experts working in energy-related fields are welcome until Friday, 23 June 2017.

Accepted applicants will have the opportunity to contribute to:

  • Review of strategic documents outlining “new paradigms” in energy education and research, a UNI-SET and EUA-EPUE initiative to formulate recommendations and good practices for universities aiming to upgrade their education and research activities.  The “new paradigms” will address horizontal content of multi-disciplinary education and research programmes with a specific focus on: Energy Efficiency; Energy Systems & Smart Grids; Sustainable Transport; Integration of Renewables. The strategic documents will be presented at the 6th UNI-SET Energy Clustering Event which will take place from 23 to 24 October 2017 in Brussels.
  • Scientific input to future EU consultations in the framework of the Energy Union, SET-Plan and Framework Programme in energy-related fields, such as previously submitted EUA-EPUE policy inputs.
