Energy Community of Young Researchers Groningen

The Energy Community of Young Researchers is a platform for enthusiastic researchers from various fields to share their energy-related knowledge and experiences. The Energy Community is open to PhD Candidates/young researchers of the University of Groningen and Hanze University of Applied Sciences and connecting universities.

Early January 2018 we saw the kick-off of the Energy Community of young researchers in Groningen. The community has so far received about 150 registrars, including researchers from a broad variety of disciplines related to the common denominator ‘Energy’.

The growing awareness that there is much energy-related knowledge available within the universities of Groningen (University of Groningen & Hanze University of Applied Science) that could be used to everyone’s benefit. Goals: to get to know who the other young energy researchers are, meet up, and organize activities for professional development and shared benefit (and of course, share some good times along the way).

Meet your fellow young reseachers

One of the aims of our newsletter is to connect the members of our vibrant community. Therefore, in each newsletter, we introduce a member of the community who answers to some general questions and tells about his/her research.

We are the next generation, so we should raise our voices more. By doing this rather collective than in individual practices, we create less tension between relationships of senior staff and the young researchers, but articulate the shared opinion of a group.

Studying energy security and energy transition problems seemed like a very logical choice for me because they are closely related to human and urban security, energy poverty in developing countries like Ukraine. First, it was Chernobyl….

Committee of Representatives

This community is originally started in cooperation with PhD-candidates from all different faculties and schools of the University of Groningen and Hanze University of Applied Science. We have a Committee of Representatives which is the organizing committee and the bridge between the community and the peers in their own discipline. We always look for extra members for our Committee, so feel free to contact us for more information!
