SPRING 2012 SCHEDULE
7.5 ECTS PhD Course, SOLEN for a Sustainable Future
- Perspectives on Solar Energy from Science, Industry and Policy -
One of the major problems the global community faces today is the increasing demand on energy due to the economic and demographic growth.
For the first time at Uppsala University, a course centres Solar Energy as one solution to our energy question and approaches this broad field from a scientific, industrial and political angle. Scientific experts from the Uppsala University and SLU, together with representatives from the local solar industry and political experts from European governmental institutions such as the Swedish Energy Agency and the International Energy Agency will provide an overview about current research and social-economic perspectives on solar energy, as well as political concepts.
PhD students from all faculties and interested (non-) university members are invited to learn more about this highly relevant topic in an interdisciplinary and international atmosphere; within lectures, discussion- seminars, simple lab-experiments and field-trips!
