4th UNI-SET Energy Clustering Event will focus on sustainable transport and CCSU
EUA, together with KU Leuven, is organising the 4th UNI-SET Energy Clustering Event (ECE) from 27 to 28 March 2017. The event will be hosted by Imperial College London (UK).

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” (weblink: http://eua.be/activities-services/news/newsitem/2016/12/01/roadmap-aims-to-mobilise-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 priorities, with a particular view on R&I actions and higher education activities in the fields of sustainable transport and carbon capture, storage and use.

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 (weblink: http://eua.be/activities-services/events/event/2017/03/27/default-calendar/4th-uni-set-energy-clustering-event). Deadline for submissions is 31 January 2017).

Registrations will run from January to March 2017. Please note that attendance to the event is limited. Places will be allocated on a first-registered, first-served basis.
