PhD Summer School

 

Every year the University of Groningen and EAE organize the Groningen Energy Summer School for PhD students. The course takes an interdisciplinary approach to the energy transition. By bringing together and combining a broad range of disciplines the course offers a unique opportunity for PhD students to become aware of different aspects of the energy transition, to develop novel insights, and to create synergy in approaches to energy transition. Participants will attend lectures by specialists in the field, present their own and each other’s work, and play an active role in the discussions.

 

The Groningen Energy Summer School (GESS2018), held for the 7th time in 2018 by the University of Groningen and co-hosted by New Energy Coalition/Energy Academy Europe, will focus on Local Energy Innovations for Global Change. It will take place from July 12 – 20, 2018. The Summer School takes an integrative approach to the societal and technological dimensions of the energy transition. By combining a broad range of disciplines, this event offers a unique opportunity to PhD students to become aware of different aspects of energy transition, to develop novel insights, and to learn to create synergy between approaches to the energy transition. The participants will attend lectures by specialists in the field, present their own and each other’s work, and play an active role in the discussions.

By interaction between natural sciences, social sciences, engineering, the humanities, economics and law unique new insights will emerge, as the previous Energy Summer Schools have demonstrated.

‘Tegenlicht’ Meet Up: The Breakthrough of Renewable Energy

It makes sense to have a debate on renewable energy at the most sustainable –and for that matter the chosen most beautiful- building in Groningen. This evening the Energy Academy Building will be hosting the VPRO Tegenlicht Meet Up Groningen: a public debate on the topic of renewable energy.
