Energy and Big Data: Transition and the informational turn in Energy
Masters course, Dept of Science and Technology Studies, U. of Vienna (description)
Groningen Energy Summer School

Energy transition is a complex topic which requires expertise and insights from different perspectives. It is a matter of national and international importance, with significant implications for economic, ecological, societal and political welfare.

The Groningen Energy Summer School for PhD students takes an interdisciplinary approach to energy transition. By bringing together and combining a broad range of disciplines, this summer school will offer a unique opportunity to PhD students to become aware of different aspects of the energy transition, to develop novel insights and to create synergy in approaches to energy transition. The summer school is the opportunity to connect to new networks, to learn from experts in the field including practitioners, and to discuss one’s own work. Group work on a case study further ensures an interdisciplinarity experience.
