5th UNI-SET Energy Clustering Event will focus on science & skills for renewables integration

2 June 2017, Leuven, Belgium

From 31 May to 2 June 2017, KU Leuven (Belgium) hosts the 5th UNI-SET Energy Clustering Event (ECE) on the SET-Plan Core Priority “N°1 in Renewable Energy”. The event intends to stimulate discussion among university leaders on the development of innovative and multidisciplinary research and education programmes.

The conference will also offer specific opportunities for “clustering” knowledge, in which research and education leaders from different disciplines will present their views on the specific priorities of the SET-Plan.

The event is the fifth of the series of six events aiming to mobilise Europe’s university community in the field of energy. It carries forward the activities outlined in the “Roadmap for European Universities in Energy” published in December 2016.

Through the event, participants will also have the opportunity to engage in discussions for new paradigms in energy higher education and research in the specific field of renewables integration. EUA and the UNI-SET consortium have launched a Call for Contributions welcoming proposals for parallel sessions in form of good practices and initiatives (download the Call for Contributions on the event`s website).

The ECE themes are based on the priorities of the SET-Plan. For any enquiries please contact uni-set@eua.be

European Climate Change Adaptation 2017 - Our Climate Ready Future

5-9 June 2017, Glasgow, UK

ECCA 2017 will be organised by 3 EU-funded projects: IMPRESSIONS, RISES AM and HELIX.

ECCA 2017 will build upon the achievements of ECCA 2013 in Hamburg and ECCA 2015 in Copenhagen, which emphasised research-policy-practice links and the emerging adaptation services offered by businesses.


The theme of ECCA 2017 is ‘Our Climate Ready Future’. The vision is that this conference will inspire and enable people to work together to discover and deliver positive climate adaptation solutions that can strengthen society, revitalise local economies and enhance the environment. It will bring together the people who will deliver action on the ground – from business, industry, NGOs, local government and communities – to share knowledge, ideas and experience with leading researchers and policymakers.


ECCA 2017 is held in Europe but the focus is global, with presenters from 48 countries on five continents.

The programme features three plenary sessions, 85 parallel sessions, a poster drinks reception, a Ceilidh and a film screening. This year, for the first time, there is a special Business and Innovation programme to be run in parallel with the first two days of the conference.
