Call for contributions: 4th UNI-SET Energy Clustering Event

12 January 2017

The call for contributions is now open for the 4th UNI-SET Energy Clustering Event, which will be hosted by Imperial College London on 27 and 28 March 2017. Under the title “Universities in the Energy Transition: Focus on Sustainable Transport and Carbon Capture, Storage & Use”, the event continues the series of six UNI-SET Energy Clustering Events.

uniset logoRectors, vice-rectors, deans of studies and heads of institutional initiatives related to energy are invited to participate in the call. The contributions should highlight good practices in university-led research and education programmes at the master and doctoral level and will be discussed during the conference’s parallel sessions on sustainable, renewable and biological fuels; electric vehicle and battery technology; carbon capturing and utilisation technology; and subsurface and geology research for CCS.

Practices involving multidisciplinary approaches are particularly welcome, for example programmes integrating science, engineering and technology disciplines with social sciences and humanities, programmes aimed at developing policy making profile graduates, or market and finance experts. Educational and research programmes conducted in cooperation with business partnerships are also welcome.

Proposals can be submitted through the call for contributions form. The deadline is 31 January 2017. 

The primary objective of the 4th UNI-SET Energy Clustering Event is to mobilise the European university community within the specific European Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET-Plan) priorities of “Sustainable Transport” and “Carbon Capture, Use and Storage”. It offers an opportunity to engage in discussions related to the Horizon 2020 Energy Societal Challenge, the SET-Plan and the Energy Union R&I framework, in line with the Roadmap for European Universities in Energy  published on 1 December 2016. A more specific pan-European action agenda for universities regarding the topics of the event will be developed based on the outcomes of the discussions.

For a draft programme and more information, please see the event website. Registration for the event is free and will start in late January 2017.
