The overall objective of the NorRen Summer School is to provide participants with a comprehensive overview of current energy-related challenges. This programme targets professionals and PhDs working in the field of energy and climate change, delivering academic content within an internationally-representative and experience-rich learning environment. The course will combine lectures from a range of disciplines with study visits to energy facilities and the opportunity to collaborate with fellow participants on group projects. Throughout the week, students, professionals, and high-level academics and experts in the energy field will work together to develop a better understanding of the challenges facing the industry today.

  • Lectures by leading international researchers and industry experts.
  • Excursions to energy-related facilities, such as large- and small-scale hydropower plants, a wind power plant, and grid and transformer stations.

  • Abundant networking opportunities.
  • A collaborative educational environment—participants will be arranged in interdisciplinary groups to work throughout the week on a topical project that will culminate in a written assignment.
