5th UNI-SET Energy Clustering Event
EUA, together with KU Leuven, is organising the 5th UNI-SET Energy Clustering Event (ECE) from 31 May to 2 June 2017. The event will be hosted by KU Leuven (Belgium).

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 on the development of 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 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 Friday, 7 April 2017).

Registration is free of charge and will close on 15 May 2017. Please note that attendance to the event is limited. Places will be allocated on a first-registered, first-served basis.
