In collaboration with the NorRen Summer School, the two Norwegian centres for environment-friendly energy research (FME centres), Bio4Fuels and MoZEES, will organize an interdisciplinary PhD summer school on the energy transition in the transport sector. This one-week programme targets PhDs doing research that is related to sustainable transport solutions, from both natural sciences and social sciences. The overall objective is to provide participants with a comprehensive overview of current and future challenges. Throughout the week, students, professionals, academics and experts within relevant fields will work together to develop a better understanding of the major issues facing the transport sector. Key topics include biofuels, hydrogen and batteries - for road, rail and sea. There will be a focus on complete value chains, covering not just technologies, but also looking into socio-economic factors, policies and regulations as well as completely new business models.
The summer school will be held at Quality Hotel Leangkollen in Asker, Norway
