2nd UNI-SET Energy Clustering Event

Contributed by: European University Association

From 2016-09-26 to 2016-09-28, Italy
From 26 to 28 September 2016, Politecnico di Torino (Italy) is hosting the 2nd UNI-SET Energy Clustering Event on the SET-Plan Core Priority 3 “Develop and strengthen energy-efficient systems” and Additional Priority 2 “Increase safety in the use of nuclear energy”. The event seeks to stimulate discussion and the development of innovative and multidisciplinary research and education programmes through clustering activities, consortia building and knowledge sharing.
2nd UNI-SET Energy Clustering Event
EUA, together with KU Leuven, is organising the 2nd UNI-SET Energy Clustering Event (ECE) from 26 to 28 September 2016. The event will be hosted by Politecnico di Torino (Italy).

The event is the second of a series of UNI-SET ECEs which are taking place in 2016 and 2017 to discuss and stimulate the development of innovative research and education programmes in the energy field. The ECEs aim to mobilise the European university community to tackle the “energy challenge”, in the framework of the European Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET-Plan) and the European Energy Union. The ECE themes are based on the priorities of the SET-Plan. Very importantly, conference participants also have the opportunity to contribute to the development of a “Roadmap for Universities” in the energy sector.

The priorities that serve as the foundation of the ECE planned in Turin are based on Core Priority 3 “Develop and strengthen energy-efficient systems” and Additional Priority 2 “Increase safety in the use of nuclear energy” (more information on the event at: http://www.eua.be/activities-services/events/event/2016/09/26/default-calendar/2nd-uni-set-energy-clustering-event).

Call for Contributions:
We are welcoming your proposals for contributions in the form of “good practice examples” and “project ideas and proposals” for several parallel sessions based on the event themes of “energy efficiency” and “nuclear safety”. Please refer to the Call for Expressions of Interest on the event website on how to provide your inputs to the conference:

The deadline for submissions is Friday 1 July 2016.

Free registration for the 2nd ECE in Turin will open in mid-June. Priority will be given to universities participating in the UNI-SET Universities Survey (http://universities.uni-set.eu/Survey/Intro).
