Wubbo Ockels School of Energy and Climate
Welcome to the Wubbo Ockels community!
The Wubbo Ockels School is a way for the UG to boost its contribution to the energy transition. There are three other schools: one for governance, politics, and sustainable processes (Rudolph Agricola School), one for digitization, digital technology, and artificial intelligence (Jantina Tammes School), and one for public health (Aletta Jacobs School).
Teaching, research, impact, and public involvement thrive in an environment that encourages students, researchers, external parties, and interested parties to meet up and talk. So, expanding a community is part of the programme of activities of the School.
Focus on research into the energy transition
The Wubbo Ockels School facilitates and supports the development of interdisciplinary research into the broad spectrum of energy and climate. At this stage of the School’s development, specific attention is being paid to three themes:
With regard to teaching, the Wubbo Ockels School is expanding on existing interdisciplinary initiatives, such as the Energy Minor taught in the Faculty of Economics and Business, and the Energy Summer School.
There are new plans for:
- a Minor on climate mitigation and adaptation (together with University College Groningen and Campus Fryslân)
- informing students by analysing and communicating about all of the existing teaching activities relating to energy and climate
- making an inventory of any additional student wishes for new course units (in consultation with the Green Office)
- international collaboration within the Enlight programme.
