Interdisciplinary summer school, PhD-course on flexible energy systems

The University of Bergen (UiB), the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and the University of Oslo (UiO) have the pleasure of inviting all PhD-students working within the fields of energy to the 2020 interdisciplinary summer school on flexible energy systems. This year’s summer school will take place in the Bergen region. The overall focus will be flexible energy systems with a particular emphasis on wind, solar, hydrogen and the interactions between these technologies. As part of an interdisciplinary approach, the participants will also gain insight into legal and financial framework conditions of the new emerging technologies. We encourage all students working in the field of energy to apply!

The summer school will be held at Bjørnafjorden Hotell at Os, 45 minutes by car from Bergen city centre.
