UNI-SET at a glance
How can universities mobilise, facilitate and increase their involvement in the European Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET-Plan) and work more efficiently towards realising a low-carbon society?
These questions, that embrace all fields of knowledge, will be tackled by UNI-SET, a three-year project under the European Commission’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), coordinated by the European University Association (EUA) and implemented jointly with the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (KU Leuven), representing the universities in KIC InnoEnergy.
UNI-SET will first map the activities of European universities in the field of energy and produce online, interactive maps displaying existing Master, Doctorate and Research programmes. Additionally, UNI-SET will survey potential employers in the energy field to gain insights into current and future demand for professional skills and knowledge.
Both activities will lead to a series of clustering events in 2016 and 2017, bringing together the university community and other stakeholders to discuss and shape new activities in the field of energy.
