17 – 19 October 2018: Pilot Plant Research Lab on Organic-waste Exploitation, Lindlar-Remshagen, Germany

Take this unique opportunity to work at pilot plant installations and gain valuable hands-on experiences with key technologies.

The course is designed for students with an engineering background who are interested in operating real-world installations, such as biogas pilot plant, leachate water treatment and combustion plants.

The research will focus on sustainable resource efficiency, material conversion and site-related environmental technologies and techniques. After examing suppy, processing and conversion, you will have the opportunity to optimize treatement of intermediate products and end producs.

09 – 12 April 2018: 3rd eseia Conference on "Smart Energy Systems in Cities and Regions", Dublin Institute of Technology, Ireland.

The conference Smart Energy Systems in Cities and Regions is part of the bi-annualeseiaconference series, convening top innovators from academia, business, and public sector to discuss the transition of the European energy and resource system. The 2018 conference will be hosted by Dublin Institute of Technology, Dublin, Ireland, back to back with theeseiaGeneral Assembly and Governing Council meetings.

This year’s conference is dedicated to Smart Energy Systems and papers are invited in the following 4 areas:

  1. Smart Energy Systems in Cities & Regions

  2. Sustainable & Smart Mobility

  3. Urban Regeneration Sustainability in Cities & Regions

  4. Bioresourcing Cities & Regions

26 February – 2 March 2018: Student Camp on the Regional Challenges of the Bio-Based Economy

The second BioEnergyTrain Student Camp will be hosted by Energy Agency Styria and will take place on 26 February and will end on 2 March 2018 in Graz, Austria.

Join our interdisciplinary student camp and work alongside our experts to develop solutions for real-life challenges of the regional bio-based economy. You will expand your network, meet national and international professionals and experience interesting excursions!

You and your team will work on one of the following real-life challenges:

Challenge 1 “Accomplishing Climate Protection Goals”

Problem Owner and contact: Administration of the Federal Government of Styria (DI Dieter Preiß,  Department for Energy and Building)

The Styrian Climate and Energy Strategy will be published in early 2018 and will be the strategic guideline for reaching Styria’s climate protection goals. Essential stakeholders were partners in developing the strategy, consisting of eight main fields of action such as energy efficient buildings, sustainable mobility, forestry, energy production and resource-saving

life style

. The goal of this challenge is to develop a set of implementable measures for a field of action, selected by the group of students. How can the strategy’s objectives be achieved in this specific field?

Challenge 2 “Biomass – Reaching The Masses”

Problem Owner and contact: Styrian Chamber of Agriculture / Austrian Biomass Association (Dr. Christian Metschina, Head of Department Energy, Climate and Bio Resources of Styrian Chamber of Agriculture )

In Austria, Biomass can be considered as the most important renewable energy carrier. However, other renewable alternatives such as photovoltaic and

hydro power

are much higher accepted by the public. This perception shall be changed to a more positive image, using specific and target

group oriented

media campaigns. Questions to be worked on during the student camp are: What are success factors for such campaigns? How can the public acceptance

for

biomass as energy carrier be increased effectively?

Challenge 3 “Circular Bio-Economy Mureck – continuously innovative”

Problem Owner and contact: BioEnergie Mureck / SEBA Mureck ( ÖkR Karl Totter, founder)

The region Mureck is a pioneer in integrated and decentralized

bio energy

production.

Since

decades, local

bio resources

are innovatively used within a sustainable energy and resource cycle. Several valuable initiatives such as

biodiesel  and

biogas production, photovoltaic with citizen participation and local heating network

enables

Mureck to partly operate self-sufficient, even in case of an energy blackout. Questions to be worked on during the student camp are: Which elements of the energy and resource cycle could be models for other regions? How can the circular economy in Mureck be extended sustainably?

Challenge 4 “Bio Based Products From Municipal Solid Waste”

Problem Owner and contact: Administration of the Federal Government of Styria (Dr. Ingrid Winter, Head of Department Waste Management and Sustainability

Municipal solid waste is

disposed

by every citizen – it is everything which is thrown in the bins or brought to the local recycling. If we take a look at it closely, a lot of this material

are

bio-resources – e.g. kitchen waste, garden waste or waste wood. Use your creativity and develop new products out of these waste streams! How can the extraction of the necessary secondary raw materials function?

______________________________________________________________

The core part of the Student camp is based on interactive and autonomous group work within interdisciplinary teams. Participants will take part not only to lectures but also to excursions to institutions working in the bioenergy sector, in order to see how theory is put into practice. Academic supervision is provided by national and international experts of the Graz University of Technology, Austria, and the University Twente, Netherlands. The

organisations

and institutions that formulated the four real-life challenges will participate

to

the camp week as well.

Download here the preliminary Timetable.

Student profile: Master and

PhD

students from every discipline

is

welcomed.

Cost: € 240 including accommodation at Jufa Hotel Graz Süd, lunches, lectures, workshops, course materials and excursion. If no accommodation is needed, the participation fee is reduced to € 120. For long distance travels, you can apply for financial support at your university!
