23-24 October 2017, Brussels, Belgium
From 23 to 24 October 2017, the European University Association (EUA) in collaboration with InnoEnergy, organise the 6th UNI-SET Energy Clustering Event (ECE).
The event “European Universities in the Energy Transition: Towards a Clean Energy Future” will take place at the Flemish Parliament in Brussels, Belgium. The event will be the sixth “Energy Clustering Event" and targets European policymakers, stakeholders and university leaders, providing a platform for dialogue on the current and future role of universities at the interface of Europe’s energy research and higher education policies.
So far, 500 participants joined the events and discussions of the UNI-SET project and more than 200 European universities from 30 countries provided information in the European Atlas of Universities in Energy Research and Education.
The conference will include the presentation of a forthcoming report entitled “Identifying New Paradigms in Energy Education and Research: An Action Agenda for Europe’s Universities”. The report will provide recommendations for universities, companies and policymakers for the design of energy education and research activities with the aim to address the skills gap between higher education provision and needs of the business sector for the energy transition.
The conference will highlight the contribution and mobilisation of universities towards the goals of the Energy Union and the SET-Plan and discuss how the momentum could be enhanced in the following years, following the publication of the 2016 Roadmap for European Universities in Energy.
It will also be an opportunity to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Strategic Energy Technology (SET) Plan and debate how the future European Framework Programme (FP9) can support the linkage of research, innovation and education objectives in the field of energy.
