Universities in the Energy Transition: Focus on Energy Efficient Systems and Nuclear Safety
The event is the second of a series of UNI-SET “Energy Clustering Events" which will take place in 2016 and 2017 to discuss and stimulate the development of innovative research and education programmes in the energy field. The events seek to mobilise the European university community to tackle the “energy challenge” by fostering exchange and collaboration between researchers, educators and other stakeholders, framed by the European Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET-Plan) and the Energy Union.
The event in Torino will provide opportunities for clustering, consortia building and knowledge sharing. The main themes of the event, around which sessions will be programmed, are derived from two priorities of the SET-Plan:
- Develop and strengthen energy-efficient systems (Core priority 3)
- Increase safety in the use of nuclear energy (Additional priority 2)
The event is organised in the framework of the FP7 UNI-SET project, an action implemented jointly by the European University Association (EUA) and KU Leuven, representing the universities in KIC InnoEnergy. The UNI-SET ECEs are mainly intended for EUA member universities participating in the UNI-SET Universities Survey.
The objective of the event is to mobilise the European university community to tackle the “energy challenge” by fostering inter-university cooperation and the voice of universities in the development of energy policy at EU level. The event will offer insights into innovative programmes and approaches from a multidisciplinary perspective through examples, lessons learnt and other best practice. The conference will offer specific opportunities for networking and project development. Participants will also contribute to the development of a roadmap for universities to unfold their full potential in the energy system transformation.
