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.

HoNESt is organizing a Stakeholder Engagement Workshop in Barcelona 21-22 September.
This workshop will be focused in discussing the historical research findings on societal relations with nuclear energy in Southern Europe (Greece, Italy, Portugal and Spain).
The workshop will involve three components. First, the participants will discuss the historical research findings on societal relations with nuclear energy and nuclear energy's societal engagement.
Second, the participants will discuss some of the mechanisms identified by the social science research that have been used for engaging the public and other stakeholders with nuclear power. And third, HoNESt would very much value the participants involvement in a workshop where we will explore the future of societal engagement in the nuclear industry.
The Workshop will be held at Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona. It will start on Thursday, 21 September, and end on Friday, 22 September. The working language of the event is English. A part of travel and accommodation expenses is refunded. Places are limited.

This event brings together the most innovative European hydrogen initiatives in the transport sector.
On Friday 22 September 2017 sector experts will share the latest learnings from the FCH JU funded HyFIVE and H2ME 1 & 2 projects and demonstrate hydrogen technology as the solution to advancing the EU’s air quality and green agenda.
The morning part of the event will be dedicated to the HyFIVE final conference including conclusions from the project and discussions on the benefits of zero-emission hydrogen technology in project regions.
This will give participants the chance to find out how hydrogen technology is closely linked to the EU’s air quality and green agenda and will highlight next steps beyond the project.
In the afternoon, a roundtable hosted by the H2ME project will take place, hosting a discussion about how hydrogen and fuel cell technology (HFC) can support the EU’s decarbonisation goals and how to address the remaining barriers to uptake of HFC technologies in the transport sector.
