Parallel Sessions: Universities responding to the energy challenge (I: Knowledge
sharing)
In these sessions, attendees can deliver short statements on their experiences,
challenges and solutions when delivering excellent research outputs and educational
programmes. The sessions provide opportunities to share insights and highlight from
institution and liaise with institutions with similar interests.
See the → Call for Expressions of Interest to submit a topic to share with the audience
through the corresponding electronic form.
Working session a) Adapting curricula and teaching methodologies to the
continually evolving and expanding European energy sector
This parallel session will focus on knowledge sharing, best practices and networking
in the field of energy education programmes, e.g. for project development in
Erasmus+. This includes questions such as
o
o
o
How to develop multi-disciplinary Master and Doctorate energy
programmes?
How to integrate state-of-the-art energy research into educational
programmes?
How to adapt teaching methodologies to train the future energy professionals
(e.g. e-learning, MOOCs)?
Chairs:
Prof. Mihaela Albu, University Politehnica of Bucharest, Romania
Prof. Sigurdur Magnus Gardarsson, University of Iceland, Iceland
Rapporteur: Mar Martinez Diaz, KU Leuven; KIC InnoEnergy, Belgium
Working session b) Fostering cross-disciplinary research to tackle the wide spectrum
of issues in realising the transition to a low-carbon energy society
This parallel session will focus on knowledge sharing, best practices and networking
in the field of energy research activities, e.g. for project development in Horizon 2020
or the SET-Plan. This covers questions such as:
o
o
How to develop cross technology research to optimize the European energy
system?
How to integrate technological, social and economic aspects of energy
research?
How to link social sciences and economics research expertise to tackle energy
issues e.g. human behavioural/attitudinal change factors concerning energy
use and efficiency, viable economic and fiscal instruments for a low-carbon
economy, and addressing social problems such as fuel poverty?

community to the development of energy research policy at European level, such as
the SET-Plan and Horizon 2020. This covers questions such as:
o
o
o
o
o
How to organise education and research in cooperation with industry and
research organisations?

Parallel Sessions: Universities responding to the energy challenge (II: Taking action)
In these sessions, attendees have the opportunity to deliver short statements on their
experiences, challenges and solutions when delivering excellent research outputs and
educational programmes.
See the → Call for Expressions of Interest to submit a topic to share with the audience.
The sessions will Initiate the process to develop action points for a roadmap outlining
universities’ contributions to the energy challenge.
