Energy Clustering Event

"European Universities for a Clean Energy Future: Interdisciplinary Education, Training and Research"


The event will discuss and further develop the recommendations issued in the report “Energy Transition and the Future of Energy Research, Innovation and Education: An Action Agenda for European Universities”, a strategic document providing suggestions for universities and policymakers for the update of energy education and research programmes.

Hosted by Université de Lorraine, Nancy, France

21 - 22 March 2018

  • With this Energy Clustering Event, the European University Association (EUA) through its Energy and Environment Platform (EUA-EPUE), in collaboration with the University of Lorraine and InnoEnergy, seeks to strengthen the dialogue on the current and future role of universities in the triangle of Europe’s energy research and higher education policy.

    The event will take place from 21 to 22 March 2018 and will be hosted by the University of Lorraine (Nancy, France). It is aimed at university leadership, energy professionals and policy makers active in higher education and research in the field of energy and will offer an opportunity for open exchange and idea generation on the topic of one of Europe’s most pressing Societal Challenges.

    The workshop will discuss and further develop the recommendations issued in the report “Energy Transition and the Future of Energy Research, Innovation and Education: An Action Agenda for European Universities”, a strategic document providing suggestions for universities and policymakers for the update of energy education and research programmes prepared by the UNI-SET project. It lists recommendations on how to integrate newest and innovative learning and teaching methods into energy-related courses and programmes. Practitioners and programme managers can also consult a selection of possible course topics and learning outcomes on technical, social, economic and political issues related to sustainable energy.

    Following the 2016 Roadmap for European Universities in Energy, the conference finally seeks to strengthen the work of EUA-EPUE. Part of the workshop will be dedicated to discuss how EUA-EPUE can enhance its support for universities at European level and its involvement in the Energy Union and the European Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET-Plan).

  • About the host

    The Université de Lorraine (UL) is one of France’s largest multidisciplinary universities. Its location in the heart of Europe, with borders on three European member states (Germany, Belgium and Luxembourg) offers to UL a privileged position for strong international partnerships. 

    In particular, UL is a member of the cross-border university network of the international region associating Lorraine, Saarland, Rhineland-Palatinate, Luxembourg and Wallonia, and involving 6 major universities. The cross-border network takes advantage of the proximity of several foreign universities to encourage and facilitate the mobility of the university community, network researchers and increase the influence of the region in Europe.

    The scientific activity of UL is organised in 60 research laboratories located in 10 scientific centres covering a wide range of disciplinary fields and topics. In addition, the University houses several technology platforms including large-scale facilities and large measurement instruments, providing research teams with the most efficient equipment. The educational opportunities cover initial training in all fields of knowledge, with cross-cutting programmes between institutions and between disciplines, allowing students to adapt their studies to their personal development needs.

    UL plays a major role in the socio-economic development of the Lorraine region and the country by creating an interface between the academic world on the one hand, and professional and industrial worlds on the other. This interface contributes to valuable and enriching exchange for all stakeholders through innovation, partnerships, knowledge sharing, research, development and technology transfer in association with several partners (CNRS, INRA, INRIA, INSERM, CHRU Nancy, AgroParisTech, and Georgia Tech Lorraine).

    UL has recently obtained the I-SITE label from the French call on excellence initiatives for a programme calledLorraine Université d’Excellence(LUE). LUE will provide, over at least 10 to 15 years, an annual flow of several million euros dedicated to the development of our academic site as a European and international reference on Global Engineering. The programme will focus on six major social and economic challenges, including energy transition and energy for the future, for which academic institutions and companies can complement each other in order to develop innovative solutions.
