London, United Kingdom
The 4th UNI-SET Clustering Event (ECE) will be hosted by Imperial College London in London, United Kingdom.
The event is the fourth of a series of UNI-SET "Energy Clustering Events” which will take place in 2016 and 2017 to discuss and stimulate the development of innovative research and education programmes in the energy field. The events seek to mobilise the European university community to tackle the "energy challenge” by fostering exchange and collaboration between researchers, educators and other stakeholders, framed by the European Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET-Plan) and the Energy Union.
The event in London will provide opportunities for clustering, consortia building and knowledge sharing. The main themes of the event, around which sessions will be programmed, are derived from two core priorities of the SET-Plan:
- Sustainable Transport’
- ‘Competitive in global battery sector and e-mobility’
- ‘Renewable fuels and bioenergy’
- ‘Carbon Capture Utilisation and Storage’
The event is organised in the framework of the FP7 UNI-SET project, an action implemented jointly by the European University Association (EUA) and KU Leuven, which represents the universities in KIC InnoEnergy. The UNI-SET ECEs are mainly intended for EUA member universities participating in the UNI-SET Universities Survey.
Participants: Specifically, the events will be of interest to university leaders in the field of energy (e.g. rectors and vice-rectors, deans, heads of institutional energy initiatives, with an interest in innovative approaches for energy research and education), as well as other stakeholders from the energy research, education and policy development.
