What are Energy Learning Activities?
The energy transition needs professionals and researchers who are specialists in their field, but who are also able to look beyond their own discipline. People who are trained in a multidisciplinary way, who know how to cooperate with other professionals, and who have a broad set of skills and competences. Therefore EAE organizes Learning Activities: public events, open to anyone with an interest in the energy transition. With some special attention for students of Hanze UAS and University of Groningen to introduce them to the multifaceted world of the energy transition.
Learning Activities offer the opportunity to get acquainted with different points of view, different interests, and different fields. We believe this will add an extra dimension to the education and it will increase the future employability of the students.
Plus joining these activities helps students to build a network. They will not only meet other energy students but also professionals, researchers and other experts. In short: Energy Learning Activities provide students with interdisciplinary knowledge on a wide range of issues. And they help students on their way to become a future well-rounded energy professional!
Energy Learning Activities are organized by Energy Academy Europe, sometimes in collaboration with other parties like Studium Generale, Hanze UAS and University of Groningen. The Energy Learning Activities Programme is a specifically designed extra curricular programme for bachelor and master students, who are enrolled at the University of Groningen and Hanze University of Applied Sciences. Of course, we also invite everyone else interested in the energy transition to participate in our Energy Learning Activities. In general the events are free of admission and everyone is invited, but you are kindly requested to register in advance.
