4th UNI-SET Energy Clustering Event (27-28/03/2017) will focus on sustainable transport and CCSU

27-28 March 2017, London, United Kingdom

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 fourth 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 on the development of thematic dossiers and recommendations from the university community on ways forward in the different SET-Plan, with a particular view on R&I actions and higher education activities.

EUA and the UNI-SET consortium have launched a Call for Contributions welcoming proposals for contributions for parallel sessions in form of good practices from university projects and initiatives (download the Call for Contributions on the event`s website. Deadline for submissions is 31 January 2017). The ECE themes are based on the priorities of the SET-Plan. For any enquiries please contact uni-set@eua.be
