The European project "Social Sciences and Humanities for Advancing Policy in European Energy" (SHAPE-ENERGY) will host an international summer school on energy and social sciences and humanities, June 19-23, 2017, in ENTPE (Lyon, France).
When and where:
June 19-23, 2017;Lyon, France.
What it is:
The European project “Social Sciences and Humanities for Advancing Policy in European Energy” (SHAPE-ENERGY) will be hosting an international summer school on energy and social sciences and humanities, June 19-23, 2017, Lyon, France. This pluridisciplinary summer school for PhD students working within Social Science and Humanities (SSH) energy research will focus on how SSH research can contribute to tackle the many energy-related challenges in Europe. Key energy topics will be discussed with an emphasis on interdisciplinarity and on the translation of academic research into policy and practice. The Summer School is an opportunity to meet and collaborate with other PhD students. Advanced researchers and practitioners involved in leading European energy projects (see below) will present their expertise and facilitate the understanding of the role of SSH energy research for policy and practice. Each day, several talks, round tables and workshops will offer the opportunity to learn, discuss and apply different approaches, practices and methods to studying energy within SSH.
Who can attend:
Applications from PhD students across Europe are encouraged, especially from Eastern and Southern Europe. Up to 40 spaces will be available.
